Author’s note: This was written a few hours after the event on Monday, April 25, 2022. It has not been edited. Trigger warnings: death, suicide, grief.

I found my friend’s body today. He was in the bathtub — he took sleeping pills after dealing with a bad breakup. He had sent a mass text beforehand — it read simply “see you space cowboy,” a reference to an anime he liked, and linked to the Bone Thugs-N-Harmony song “Crossroads.”
