One of my favorite songs from a musical is “My Time of Day” from Guys and Dolls. Such an evocative description of a setting in such a few words. Here is another, completely different in tone:
Late afternoon: the entr’acte between dusk and darkness, when the people who conduct their business in the street—numbers runners in gray chesterfields, out-of-work barmaids playing the dozens, adolescents cultivating their cigarette jones and lust, small-time hustlers selling “authentic” gold wristwatches that are platinum bright—look for a place to roost and to drink in the day’s sin. -by Hilton Als, A Pryor Love
