YOUNG DRIFTER GIRL PANHANDLING, SAN FRANCISCO, MARCH 2009
she's pretty in a way that draws a crowd. so i wait for the last to break.
it's a beautiful day. she's spanging on the sidewalk with her pitbull and two boys. they're trying to make a few bucks for lunch. she's been traveling two years now; ever since her granddad kicked her out for the pound of pot.
he's got cancer now. she calls him every week so's he knows she's ok. was just a kid when her mom died in a car crash. dad's in jail. he writes her a lot.
headed north next. been all over. liked dc best; but florida was good too.
name's rain from bakersfield. talks like one of the guys but doesn't smile that way.
