Extracts from the book:

by a glint of sunlight
from my jimmy—
the cash box opens
another day of IOUs

the lie
i almost tell
bruised ginger

Something in her eyes called Nothing

I grab my coat, take her by the arm and lead her to a metal staircase tucked around a corner in the backs. We wait in the dark . . .

face of an angel
under my dealer's hoody—
stars are made from rock
