... Front flags waved in the breeze as protesters shoved back against riot police,
Udaltsov carried along by the wave of demonstrators. A cheer went up as police
lines cracked for a second, leaving the road to the bridge open, and then split,
allowing dozens of protesters to break clear in a brief bid to take their
discontentment to the Kremlin's walls. Police rounded up the runaway protesters,
someone let off a smoke bomb, a white balloon floated into the sky, and then the
day descended ...

... raising up against the sky. Sara shouting, seeing, knowing what would come. I
smelled the oil on my rifle, the smell of the powder after I fired. The bird's flight
never wavered, and my shot was good. The bird would not know the slow agony
of cold or starvation. It would not know the terror of a hawk's cry or cat's claw. It

my daughter, only knew this moment, the freedom of the air, the stretch of wings,

Bendix asks, aware of the lack of activity in the compound. “The regiment was
dispatched to general Crook” the sergeant answers looking to the north. “Too late

each thinking of the horrific deaths the men of the Seventh suffered, their
reflection broken only by a group of children, laughing, and kicking a block
ofwood about. “It looks like you have some wagons hold up here, sergeant”
Bendix says. “Yes sir!

Sometimes, when I woke up I was still inside him. Ending tended to be awkward.
We took a blanket to the park. Picnic under an oak. Elaborate kites kicking the sky
. Jackdaws screaming. Logic unfolding. This self-absorbed study of surfaces

bought him cigarettes and tied him to the wooden chair. Restrained he offered
disquieting elements of anonymity. His inability to speak rendered me as a body

eyes as the dry wind whipped them both in the face, Scratch glanced behind him
at the dozen or so others, then nodded. “Don't you dare pull back on that rein as
we shoot through, Daniel!” “Whooeee!” “Heya!” Bass hollered himself at the
sudden new surge of adrenaline warming his veins, kicking the tired horse in the
ribs, leaning forward as they bounded over the tall grass, heading straight for the
enemy, ...
