THE THING ABOUT LAURA. September 2004. Paving stones. Cigarettes. Candles and metal. I am taking a picture. I am sitting on the ground with my friends. We are drinking beer. We remain silent. Four years later. Laura’s coat is still hanging in my closet. Now we talk. Now we are talking about Laura. Laura jumped off the bridge. Before her sister’s eyes, shortly before the police could hold her back. She wasn’t immediately dead, but everything in and of her was destroyed. She was 18 years old. Four years after this incomprehensible suicide, her friends and especially her sister are still searching for answers. Memories arise between the painfully extended pauses. Detailed, factual and deeply wounded.
