‘The cops picked up a little kid who looked lost.
He wasn’t much of a talker, but he wasn’t scared.
The cops bought him ice cream and soda.
He didn’t cry until his sister came to take him home.
She said he was always running away,
and this time he was really gonna get it. He cried bitterly.
We watched her yank him up the street and out of sight’
