We laughed and chatted just outside her home.   Police drove near to see this lovely sight. Her blonde hair out of place this time of night: A Puerto Rican, but was very white.   Pulled up, and said the car was far away. My braided hair became a flaw this day. The curb ‘not close enough’—they called a play.   “Get out the car,” I heard. I asked [...]
