Smoking on the fire escape in the rain. The narrow courtyard hums with air conditioning units; S. is sleeping within the arc of a small rotating fan.

Despite the heat and the near-constant rain, it is good to be here.  More than that, it is necessary.

    But smoking on fire escapes listening to humming air conditioners? I can totally relate.
