Dense Fog: Careful Out There!
"In these days of truly dangerous dreams I think I've had a few...
down'side the water by the French Quaters in New Orleans.
Yes! Yes! I'll call that City's Name. I'll pray to her Patron Saint
--I'll do whateva it takes to feel safe--
when the Fog falls Thick and Quick, so White
you can hardly hear the Church bells ring."
