The girl in the Russian hat
The girl in the Russian hat hurried down the street with her collar turned up against the cold and her fur hat frosted with snow. As she moved into the light of a street lamp and looked back into the dark, her face flashed white. A still from a Cold War film.
The dark swallowed her again and I watched the pool of light - wanting and not wanting it to reveal a pair of heavies in fedoras and cheap overcoats.
