(Marvin Schiller, "The Sheep's in the Meadow,"...)

At 7 : 25 two hotel doormen came thumping down the steps , carrying a saw-horse to be set_up as a barricade in_front_of the haberdashery_store window next to the entranceway , and as I watched them in their gaudy red coats that nearly scraped the ground , their golden , fringed epaulets and spic , red visored caps , I suddenly saw just over their shoulders Jessica gracefully making her way through the crowd .
