A new year brings rain to a distant state of mind. Finally, the
weather has horribly broken. Finally, a curtain has parted to
reveal a curtain. Night falls like ashes and I mean this in the best
possible way. Looking out across the lake, invention attends the
sunset. I have brought myself here for no-good reasons. A woman
has a basket of food and wine. Slowly, she comes toward me. I
off er her my dark balcony. I off er her my steep stairs. Slowly, she
climbs them. Another curtain parts, slowly revealing a curtain.
