A man and a woman -- both seemingly young -- walk along a lamplit street at night; there could be rain or snow on the ground. He is bundled up and keeps his hands in his pockets. She wears only her dress, and holds her bare hands to her mouth as though blowing on them for warmth. (Virginia K. Anderson 03/20/95)
