...picked up on a long walk and carried home in your pocket
Monday, July 9
The woman inside the car with cropped blond hair has asked a seven year old with braided hair (her niece? her daughter?) to help her parallel park between two cars on the side of the road. The girl stands on the pavement, beckoning the woman on, and then holds up her hands to stop her when the bumpers gets close. The woman keeps on reversing, and the girl's gestures get larger and more urgent and her face draws back into shock. The cars hit, the girl is incredulous, betrayed.
