The linkage of recurrence can transcend the bounds of individual writers and individual works. This linkage, implicit in all allusive writing, can (like much else) be made manifest in hypertext. Or, if we wish, we can leave the allusion floating in space, eloquently unlinked save in the reader's mind:

"Veronica slips out of bed and back into her skirt, loping toward the window on the balls of her feet. She hoists the sash and takes the chill air in on her shoulders and breasts, trying to remember winter. It's her own persistent vice, this nostalgia for cold places. . . "
