Dangerous Compassions

two weird things that happened at the park

1. After I walked I was sitting at a picnic table reading a zine when two cops pulled up. They were driving a large POLICE truck over the grass. The one in the passenger seat said to me, “There’s been a report of someone shooting a gun here. Have you been here a while?” I said yes. “Have you heard anything?” I said no. “Obviously you’re talking to me–your music must not be on very loud,” he said. Then they left, and I saw another police car on the street.

2. While Erik was jogging a news person with a camera man asked, “Do you mind if I interview you?” and asked Erik some questions about vacation time. Erik said how he scores standardized tests and doesn’t get any vacation time, and the interview was short.

Good at listening to the noise until it makes sense.
