Elizabeth Rangel and I would have been very close

Sunday, 6 October 2002

A 13 year-old shot herself in the head with a 9mm pistol yesterday in front of her friends after giving her favored possessions to them in the school parking lot.

A girl I was very close with at about that age (and maybe kept me from giving away my jumbo maroon peery, steel bone pin, and Zeppelin on vinyl) told me in dream last night: “I would [remember] but how do you contain the wound?”

The song on the MP3 player is “In the Light.” Which I sang, when we were 15 on a school bus, to a certain girl who cooked me Adobo and who cheated on her husband recently and told me about it to ease something.
