Made of Quicksilver


             Once he had happiness but for so brief a time ; happiness was made of quicksilver, it ran out of your hands like quicksilver. There was the heat of tears suddenly in his eyes and he shook his head angrily. He would not think of it. He would never think of that again.

Dorothy B. Hughes
In a Lonely Place
1947
