Eighth Avenue

By Marcus L. Rowland

The diner's a Goth hangout on Eighth Avenue. By day it's almost empty. In civilian clothes, his Matches Malone disguise, Batman feels horribly conspicuous.

He orders coffee and asks for Oz; the counter-hand says "Outside, the guitar."

Oz is a short skinny redhead, playing acoustic rock. There are a few coins in the guitar case, Batman throws in a quarter and says "Angel sent me."

"From Gotham?"


"Okay. You want Faith?"

Batman nods.

"Not yet."


"You're angry. That's not the path to enlightenment."


"I can smell it. You're angry."


"Chill out. Relax. Then we'll talk."
