Read full description of the books:
This other lover of mine was Gloria. She sat three rows in front of me in Algebra class. I watched her hairdos from the back. Every day they were different: Beehives, Barrelcurls, Air Lifts, Pixies, flips, French Twists, Bubbles, Doublebubbles.
The things I liked best were the way her scalp shone through all the teasing as if her head was a mango and the spit curls pasted down beside her ears with clear fingernail polish. She also had bitten-to-the-quick fingernails. I even liked the warts and nicotine stains on her index and second fingers. On her, all this was heaven.
I began spending Saturday nights with Gloria when Jack had bloody cut eyes from fights. When he went in the hospital, I stayed with her the whole weekend. I slept in her single bed at her parent's prefab house and first she used to feel me up. She kept telling me, "Just pretend I'm Jack. Just pretend I'm Jack."
In the beginning the cajoling was necessary, but in the weeks that followed I didn't have to pretend she was Jack anymore.
Jack and Gloria liked each other and no one ever suspected anything about Gloria and myself. For appearances, we were best girlfriends, both of us with our combustible hairdos, sprayed with lacquer and teased high as possible. We wore the tightest black skirts ... so tight that they hobbled us . . . black stockings, white blouses with ruffles at the neck and cuffs, pointy bras underneath and five-inch spike heels.
With these shoes, and the hair, we were the tallest people in the school. Lesser women than we would have become acrophobic. We made people dizzy when they saw us. We clicked down the high school hallways in our spikes, these shoes I had to keep in my school locker to change into when I got there in the mornings . . . my mother made me wear flats to school.
When Jack was in the hospital, we picked up guys together, smoked a lot of cigarettes, sniffed glue, and drank codeine terpenhydrate cough syrup for the buzz. I stopped seeing Jack and took his initial ring off when he went to jail for a B and E (breaking and entering) charge. I stopped seeing Gloria when she got pregnant and decided to marry Ed, her longtime boyfriend, who she kept telling me she didn't love nearly as much as she loved me.
Years later, I found out that Jack, who was always pretty literate, was on methadrine writing a novel, never able to drink again because of his liver.
As for Gloria . . . that girl . . . born of a lightbulb it seemed, had died when she had gotten silicone injections for her little tits. It had spread all over her body, making tiny lumps arise on every inch of her skin, until finally it entered her pulmonary arteries and the aorta and she died of a silicone heart.
