              In the middle of the lonely crowded barroom a young woman in a black gown that accentuated her figure and pinched her waist stood behind rows of glittering punchglasses. There was a gentle acceptance in her eyes that drew me. Suddenly I realized it was a painting! I had been star...ing into a print of an old impressionist painting from the nineteenth century, you probably know the painting, that had improbably been pinned to the barroom wall. Next to the rows of glittering punchglasses in the painting was a small elegantly handwritten sign: SHOTS $3.75. Only the girl in the poster offered consolation, and I glanced at her out of the corner of my eye to see if I could catch her moving, in case it was M after all. Then the exquisite slim hand of the girl reached out and placed yet another sign in front of her glassware, this one also in tasteful black letters. YOU MUST GO TO A FAR COUNTRY it said. She seemed to set it up for me . . .

              Like the cop, the cab driver was about to have his world disturbed by a strange girl. But being a weak denizen of the city jungle, the cab driver must have a very different first impression of Rita than a cop, who by function as well as by nature is a predatory creature. As unlik...ely as it must have been, from alien planes, and miles apart, inhabiting nearly polar ends of the urban wilderness, shortly these two would get to know each other, as guys do, that is, mix their misperceptions of each other dramatically and violently. It was the last thing Rita would have wished to happen, although women are often judged as aiming to create conflict and confusion. She had plenty of problems of her own. . . .

              What if there were a whole other reality, which they were tuned into, and maybe still are, which is still there as always, as Julie claimed, only invisible? What if by pretendiing a totem pole like this was just a tourist attraction, we were kidding ourselves, like children playi...ng with a live bomb? We just couldn't see the fuse because it led into another dimension, maybe the future, where the match would be lit. What if the winning of the West had been all a vain delusion, and Destiny was Manifest on some unheard-of level where unbeknownst to us we were heading toward our ruin? What if we hadn't stolen their land after all, and all that they had said about God really owning the land, making it unstealable, was the truth, and they were just lying low and biding their time? What if under the eternal heavens we palefaces with our skyscrapers and high-tech gadgets are nothing but demented squatters, whom God will kick out by and by? These thoughts troubled me, and yet uplifted me too, somehow.
