"Metabolism" by Scott Nicholson

Originally appeared in WOTF XIV.
Collected in Head Cases.
This is a mood piece reminiscent of Harlan Ellison's essays where the character has strong negative opinions.  The story content is thin, though.  Elise is worried about those who disappear in the city.  Interestingly, her poetic-polemic banter is undermined by a line of dialogue.  She attributes the man and his actions to the city.
