  • Two smoke in the outgrowths of stone beneath the Acropolis. The girl has placed her chin on one knee. As the sun passes noon, her shadow moves beneath her like a trinket she's hiding. Her smoke works through the stones. The boy's smoke works through hers.The boy pulls down the lower lid of his eye to indicate watching, that others are watching.
