Except for Stargirl jabbering in my ear, the usual raucous chatter was absent. Mostly what I noticed were the eyes. Faces turned up from the steps below, but the eyes never connected with us. Mostly what I noticed were the eyes nt right on through us as if they were gamma rays. Or they nipped our ears and rattled off among the walls and other eyes. I had an urge to look down at myself, to make sure I was there. At lunch I said to Kevin, "Nobody looks at m. He was staring at his sandwich. Now you're doing i.
