She has recognised me.
We have drunk some hot chocolate
together. I’m going to take her home.
They’ve been kind to her, but it’s
and the drugs have been worse
than the alcohol. She will need to rest,
before I call the lawyer.
That obnoxious man
won’t let me see the children,
though her daughter calls
to say they’re fine.
I can hear her voice quiver
but she’s a brave, fearless girl.
I’m going to rescue them.
