I read it as I wait to get fingerprinted or whatever they do before they send me to prison to rot and die. On the booking sheet or whatever it’s called, where it says “hair color,” the cop had to wri...te “green.” The matronly-looking lady in front of me was arrested for DUI. She is still weaving as she grips the counter. I watch her pearl necklace sway back and forth, back and forth.
    “Maybe?”
    I turn around. It’s Sammy. I don’t know whether to cry and be angry, or cry and be happy, or cry and be relieved. So I just cry.
    He gets on his cell phone. “I’ve got her, she’s fine.” Then he hugs me. “It’s okay, it’s okay.” Sammy asks the beefy officer, “What did she do?”
    “She assaulted a potted plant,” he says, trying not to crack up. “Do you know this young lady?”
    “She’s my daughter.” The cop’s eyes go from him to me. “My stepdaughter.”
