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."
"Okay. You want Faith?"
"You're angry. That's not the path to enlightenment."
"I can smell it. You're angry."
