I was working
I hadnít worked since August Ė yes, 10 months!

But I was working Ė no.
Iíd driven up to see my daughterís friend in prison that day.
My friend, too.

He wasnít my responsibility.
Not the man in prison Ė keep focused here.

But I was his?

And so I called him.
For him?
For me?

He didnít always hear the phone.
He couldnít always get to the phone.

I knew this.

But I knew that day.
I knew.

I dialed 911.
Made my calm report.

Will you be there when the police arrive?
No Ė thatís why Iím calling YOU.
