Chilling Vapor
As we became subjects of King Alcohol, shivering denizens of his mad
realm, the chilling vapor that is loneliness settled down. It thickened,
ever becoming blacker. Some of us sought out sordid places, hoping
to find understanding companionship and approval. Momentarily we
did—then would come oblivion and the awful awakening to face the
hideous Four Horsemen—Terror, Bewilderment, Frustration, Despair.
