What does parchment skin mean in this context ? How can a buried girl have parchment skin?
What about the car accident boy buried with a McCarthy sticker on the lid of his coffin?
What about the girl with the stars on her forehead?
(They have fallen now, I imagine, from her parchment skin.)

In this scene, the narrator laments the falling hippies.

Thank you

    My understanding is parchment is the thin, dried skin of some animals that was used in the past for writing on.
