The kid sits on the corner, throwing his baseball in the air, waiting for the man; the man doesn’t show.
The kid bounces the ball on the corner, waiting for the man. He doesn’t show.
The kid waits for the man his mother promised him would never show.
The kid waits with his high school girlfriend for the man, but he doesn’t show.
The man waits for the man with his daughter; the man doesn’t show.
The man waits for the man whose hearse drives by the church.
The man in the kid finally saw the kid in the man.
