Fiction. ROCKAWAY WHEREIN is a non-linear juxtaposition of the intentions and actions of its characters. Blowing on my numb hands while descending a flight of stairs at the subway entrance. I purchase a token, place it in the slot and push myself through the turnstile. Encouraged by the warm look in her eyes. 'Why don't you take off your coat, she says in a voice that seems too low and theatrical, lying languidly on a daybed covered with small silk pillows. Perfectbound chapbook.
