    I enjoyed “Girl in Front”, but I think that if you are going to have such a noticeable rhythm, then you must be truly mindful of the cadence. Otherwise, the reader gets distracted by trying to remain in an anticipated rhythm. I love “The Collector”,and thing your short story is a worthy homage.
