84.

Squad car, stake out. Suspect tailed for twenty blocks, alleged to sell dope to middleschoolers in Roosevelt Park; no hand-offs reported. The widow’s walk funnels the screams of the sea to her ears, her salt-bitten eyes, the fog-layered horizon withholding her husband’s vessel’s masts. Beyond these bubbles of wait pops the world, children roughhouse, oceans tide men home.
