A young poet gets the brilliant idea to live in a department store, hiding by day, and courting his muse by night where it's quiet, and he can have all his needs met. But, to his surprise, he learns his brilliant idea's not exactly original; there are other residents who dodge the night watchmen, and who keep their existence secret at all costs. And one of them is a young woman who wants to leave, but is to frightened to go. And Charles finds that he wants to show her the larger world outside. Written by
When the lights go out, they come alive!

I'm reminded of the tragic story of young Phipps. Long years ago, there was a velvet smoking jacket on display. Young Phipps conceived a passion for it. Naturally the thing got sold and Phipps, his reason gone, emerged and tore it from a customer. We lived for months in terror dreading an investigation. What happened to the smoking jacket, no one knows. As for young Phipps, we had to call the dark men.
