a tattered wallet. a snapped zipper. and a crumpled yellow post-it.

words on the paper, like tiny tethers of ink. each orange stroke, a cursive stitch to a moment.

to the moment.

the one that stretched too thin while it did. spanning only as wide as the smile you became aware of as soon as you became aware enough.

still, a moment you could pause for. a moment you did pause for. to take notice and to smile. to take notice that you had smiled.


broken things keep broken things safer.
