DARK INKANTATIONS [HEMISPHERE FORTY THREE]


HEMISPHERE FORTY THREE: GUTTER PUNK GIRL

(NETHERWOODS PUBLIC LIBRARY)
 
   
The aisles of books tower above all, fronds of lexicons, texts and fonts, suspended over the white light, spilling into the tall, thick glass windows, opacities that reveal streams of cars.

Fear offers his hand.  
   
She accepts, maintaining eye contact, rising from her seat.
