repair shop

“Here. You can fix him right?”
“Eh? Hmm let me see there then…”
“So you can fix him? You can fix everything. I know it. Like that time I brought you mother’s necklace in pieces when everyone said it was beyond repair. You fixed it.”
“Well hold on there sweetheart, let me see what’s broken here… Ah! There’s your problem right there: it’s his heart. You can see there’s a fissure right up the middle- leads all the way up to his mind. Jeez you sure did a number on this one! What’d you do, drop him off a building?”
“I… I didn’t mean to… I just wasn’t thinking and I got so angry… I didn’t mean for it to be bad, but he’s just stopped working. But you can fix him can’t you? Can’t you?”


  1. How beautiful...and melancholy.
    I hope you have an enchanting New Year.

  2. Places where ghosts wander (empty stairways, the spaces between words). Beautiful post.
