From the Diary of a Duty “Officer”

From the Diary of a Duty “Officer”
A passage from the story: 

“A prostitute – fourteen years old at first sight – is holding to her nose a plastic bag full of glue. She is staggering on the kerbs of the pavement and trying to wave to the cars that rarely show up on the road. The umpteenth stops, a well-dressed man in his fifties is at the wheel opening courteously the back door where the skinny adolescent in her torn mini-skirt plunges almost. She shows up again after some quarter of an hour, getting out of the car, with the plastic bag still in her hand and arranging her clothes. The well-dressed man leaves at full throttle with a content face.”
