In which Maureen comes into the world her brother
In which Maureen attends a school for young ladies
Maureen at bay
As easy as opening a door to the air
Maureen against the wall
In which Maureen begins to see
The geometry of innocence
The masters make the rides
In which Maureen reflects on Cleos limitations and her own
Seems to be how were made
There must be some way out of here
