Foreign Faint

Foreign Faint 08-N3494 7/12/05 6:27 AM Page 103 janet mccann The bright museum lights surrounded by grey flecks, turned black. A whiff of dusty heat, a sudden whirlwind. The guide’s voice flickered and went out. I came to. There was a woman lying not uncomfortably on the green and white tiles of the floor. They chattered importantly in Italian. Someone had placed a pillow under her head, someone was checking her pulse. Then, a cool drink, a ride home in a taxi. The sensorium is a stage screen, a bright painted village rolled up tight when not in use. Let your attention wander, fingers loosen, the scroll snaps shut.
