& i think you know
just as well as i do

that i'm useless.

i'm broken—shattered, you see.
you see it in my eyes. you
see it behind my (sad [excuse
for a]) smile. something's
wrong with my body; something
doesn't connect. my brain
still thinks. my heart still beats.

but somewhere,
something doesn't work quite right
& it's not anything

you know how to fix.
