“Battery Kinzie” by Fleet Foxes from Hopelessness Blues
The following are excerpts from the Journals of Elliot Felton and Gloria Sanders, seized following recent events in the town of Kirkfield, IL.
I went over there again today. Bill, the step dad, wouldn’t let me see her. Said she didn’t want to see me, that I only made her upset. I told him I felt rotten inside without her and he didn’t know what the hell he was talking about. He told me to go again, this time in an angry voice. I got mad then too, started to tell him how good his stepdaughter felt when we fooled around. He chased me off the property then, yelling until he was red and winded. What an asshole. I know he’s keeping us apart. She probably thinks I’ve forgotten her because he doesn’t tell her the truth about me coming by and still loving her.
