to live outside the law you must be honest

you broke something
because it couldn’t be fixed
and you were right
even though
you were completely wrong

you almost said something
right before the first light
broke through the window
and made you blink

there were ashtrays
and albums
and a puzzle
that we had been working on forever
maybe we should have finished
but we both knew
there were some pieces
that had been lost
or thrown away
on accident
and on purpose
even if we were able to put it back together
there would have been something missing

i don’t know
what you were going to say
but i definitely heard you
