Iggy has run away from home at a young age. In this monologue, Iggy
Start: My mother’s dead. I don’t know what of. But she’s dead. And my father, who bossed her around, drank all the time and had other girlfriends, cried a lot and said that life was cruel. And that was it. The other night after my mother’s funeral, I went into her dresser drawers and started sorting through her underwear, her socks and her blouses. [... … …] End: And my brain would start screaming. I mean how can a person just completely disappear? I don’t understand it.
