LENNY & THE BLACK RIDERS
PART III: LUX AETERNA

After 9/11/01 I discovered two blank pages near the end of the book.
It was as if they had been waiting 17 years for the appropriate climactic images....

 Light breaks where no sun shines;
Where no seas run, the waters of the heart
Push in their tides;
And, broken ghosts with glow-worms in their heads,
The things of light,
File through the flesh where no flesh decks the bones.
.................................Dylan Thomas, from "Light Beaks Where.No Sun Shines"
