Horizontal sunlight

Valley town again. Winter afternoon graced by spectacular summer evening sky. High-altitude blue from ridgetop horizon to ridgetop horizon.

On the train a group of mirthless teenage girls, two of them wasted: bruise-colour shadows reaching south of thickly mascara-ed eyes. Mouths frozen in sullen despair.
