"There Was A Fountain At The Center Of The Mall Where Boys Would Gather To Splash And Jeer While The Women, Having Just Flipped Wish-Pennies Into Its Blue Water, Would Browse The Lingerie Store For Scratchy Garments That Passed For Appeasements To The Very Fountain-Dwellers Who Repelled Them. I Was There Too."
