Laughing children tumbled across the green grass when I walked through the town. Boats on the river spilled hot smoke to the cold, clear afternoon. "I collect lives in these pages," the old man was muttering, sheets of newspaper rustling in the breeze. Scenes of wars, and torment, healing, and joy also; all in smeared black and white. Bare-naked life with the lightning inside, but there was no lightning on the ground were he walked. Shopping carts and children all pushed together light a calm afterglow.
