Truman Capote – Summer Crossing

“He left soon afterwards, leaving her alone in the dark room, illuminated time to time by shocking leaps of heat-lightening, and she thought, now it will rain, and it never did, and she thought, now he will come, and he never did. She lighted cigarettes, letting them die between her lips, and the hours, thorned, crucifying, waited with her, and listened, as she listened: but he was not coming.”
