I laid a stack of magazines on the floor and brought out the bulletin board I bought at Walgreen earlier in the day. I cut out pictures that reminded me of him: locales, restaurant signs, ideas, thoughts. When I was finished I laid them in a pile on top of the bulletin board and watched a movie. Tommy had been prosecuted and courted by a black inmate. They fell in love, but the black inmate eventually dumped him because it would have been too painful for him to forget about Tommy once he was released. So Tommy got arrested again.
