Wes hides a sack of socks outside. People see him sneaking behind the bushes that line the library. He whistles and mutters, stealing away to the stash we all know is there, but no one wants to find, let alone remove. In another city, they might call the cops— move him along to another sidewalk, another unlocked restroom. Here, we offer a piece of cake, or steak. We tell our kids to say hello, but not to touch him. He startles easily.
