In The PowerBook,
Sex between women is mirror geography. The
subtlety of its secret--utterly the same, utterly different. You are a
looking-glass world. You are the hidden place that opens to me on the
other side of the glass. I touch your smooth surface and then my fingers
sink through to the other side. You are what the mirror reflects and
invents. I see myself, I see you, two, one, none. I don't know. Maybe I
don't need to know.

stories and novellas:
Each story has been previously published somewhere/somewhen. Most are also

From Listen to Me:
She's standing thereóby the windowówith her
back to the room, silhouetted by the moonlight filtering through the sliding
glass doors that lead to the balcony. I'm sure she hears me enter, but she
doesn't turn around. Closing the heavy door behind me, I turn the dead bolt, and
she flinches to the snick of it.
We've planned this, but she's still nervous. I can tell. Although she's
perfectly still, I can read the apprehension it in the set of her shoulders. A
little fear won't hurt. In fact, it'll probably help. I cross the room in four
long strides, tossing my shoulder bag on the king-sized bed in passing, and I
stand very close to her with my hands clasped behind my back.
Leaning forward so that just my breasts brush against her back, I bury my nose
in her hair and inhale deeply. Her thick, dark locks smell like rainówarm,
summer rain tinged with the cloying scent of honeysuckle blossoms. I lift her
hair away from her neck and whisper into the skin just below her ear, "Listen to
me." She shivers to the husky tone of my voice, the sensation of my breath. "Are
you ready for this?"
