Brother, can you spare a dime?
Mika giggles. The curtain drifts outward.
“Where are you?” I singsong, pointing. The man nods.
“Can’t find me!” Laughter.
The man grabs Mika, curtain and all.
“Hey!” I yell.
He drops a billfold, drags my little brother away.
Tonight I’ll eat.

I feel inklings of 'Labyrinth' in this piece. Nicely done.

Labyrinth is one of my all-time favorite films, so I will count this as high praise!
