Chapter Four: A Pocket of Darkness (Judson Innes)
A Pocket of Darkness judson innes C h a p T e r f o u r The comfort of timely darkness is banished by artificial, unearthly glow. On the extremes of the city the eternal, held off, awaits. In the coulee a pocket of darkness. Marbled pairs of reflected light, briefly glow, then shimmer and fade out. Alone now, they wind through tangles, relentless, and re-emerge into one.

Await the familiar, an echo emerging from below.
