First published in Antaeus No. 75/76 The Final Issue in October 1994 and later in the limited edition, Six Stories, this story tells of a man who pretends to be blind and makes his living panhandling on the streets of New York. In the past, bribing the police has kept him from being arrested but he has finally met one who may not take money for an answer.

Edited for its inclusion in Hearts in Atlantis, the story is expanded to explain that Blind Willie was one of the boys who tormented Bobby Garfield and his friends Carol and "Sully" from "Low Men in Yellow Coats."
