In lieu of an abstract, here is a brief excerpt of the content:

  • Summer Night Wings
  • Vince Gotera (bio)

In the royal blue wash of July nighta yellow glow surrounds the lone street lamp,whirling school of flying insects punch drunk

on bright light, dancing a frenzied foxtrotin thick air, their wings whirring loud in amped-upconcerto. More love than you would think

existed in the world. But other lovewaits in the wings, so to speak. A ballettroupe in fur and leather enters the fray,

gliding through the crowd, a soundless dive.Glorious bats, intoxicated with this tranceof love on the wing, this lavish wheeling dance. [End Page 35]
