Keeley / by Michael Thurber

Keeley is usually pretty awesome. Full of laughs and jokes. She likes giving people a hard time. I've hung out with her and her friends several times, photographing them (always with their permission). Tonight was the first time I've seen her really depressed. She sat in a pool of urine and we talked for thirty minutes or so. After a while I didn't know what to say. I had offered to walk her home. I tried calling her a cab (they hung up on me). I offered her food. She refused the food, but kept asking me how long I'd lived in Lincoln. Always the same answer--eight years.

She says she's lived in Lincoln all her life.

If you see her try to be nice to her. She's pretty cool.
