I said "Erica Rhodes" to the shadows
so they'd leave me to my Pinter.
I walked about 
because I didn't know where about went. I
needed the kind of reassurance priests arrogate. I
needed to know the conjuration "Erica Rhodes"
worked like the God's best table tennis. I
needed to believe in the beauty,
friends, the beauty of
this final word.
