Abstract: WALLS ELIZABETH PEARCE Elizabeth Pearce walked briskly up the concrete walk toward her side of the red brick duplex. Her lab coat, draped over her thin, white arm, swayed gently in the warm breeze. Opening her purse, she rummaged through credit card slips, loose change, and cosmetics for the house key, reminding herself to put it on a chain with the ones for the car. She draped her coat over the porch's wrought iron handrail. Though she didn't know why, after unlocking the door, she turned back and sat on the top step, perhaps because it was early Spring. She watched a dog sniffing along the white picket fence of the house across the street. Throwing her head backward, she breathed deeply of the afternoon air, knowing that soon the evening air would smell of barbecue smoke from grills.
