In lieu of an abstract, below is the essay's first paragraph.

"On Saturday mornings, DeeDee goes to the open market to buy clothes for Sra. Paloma. DeeDee lives in a dark brick building on Suffolk St., near Peretz Square, in lower Manhattan. Sra. Paloma lives across from her in a wan green tenement that has been swept by fire. Her walls are charred and blackened with soot, her floors sag from water damage, and her furniture - still soaked from the firemen's hoses - has sprouted mildew. It is rumored around the neighborhood that every morning the Senora scours her furniture in her dark fury, but the mildew always returns in a ghostly fashion."
