Into the Ether

Its like she never existed.

Jeanie.

There is no news in the papers or on the television, no updates about the case, no statements about leads, no arrests.

I’ve been to the alley where she was found. The bum has moved on and two others have taken his place. They say they have never heard of him or the murder that took place in their corner of the city. Then they asked me for money to buy liquor.

I often wonder how her parents feel, do they suffer her loss each day, or was she dead to them already?

Hotel California no longer holds the same appeal as it did a few months ago.

For that, I blame Jeanie’s “friend”
