"We walk along the busy Saturday-night street, crowded with summery fashionistas and jump jive boys. I steer him into an alleyway and push him up against a wall of chaotic graffiti. We kiss and I feel ease settle into my muscles and bones. There’s a hush now, the hubbub far away. Iron stairways, light falling in slats. Mud puddles, men in shadows, drug deals, scents of chop suey and cappuccino. We kiss, long and hard.

A red light glows through an iron grate; trees push up, defying concrete, garbage, exhaust, overwrought city planning. And two people, just passing through, wrapped in love, blossom even in the polluted urban squalour."

- from "The Gorgeous Girls" by JPG member Marie Wilson - available as an e-book at http://www.harpercollins.ca, kobo, amazon, etc.
