She flickers through my head, the loudest voice in my ears, promising this choice is the only choice left to me.

Two a.m. on this desolate street corner. A blinking yellow street light above the wet corners of the road, suspended their like some kind of evening sun. The power lines still covered in powdered snow, slowly falling onto gravel and dirt under a pale wind. Every star that can be seen within a city can be seen on this night; that’s how clear it is. A brilliant light, elastic across the horizon, shimmering red slightly above the evergreens that line the parks and neighborhood houses. In the distance, the sounds of a train can be heard calling off, longing for an ear to catch the noise, almost as if waiting for someone to scream back…
