if somebody told me
that my favorite
"i wear these to see the world in color"
had been stepped on and broken into tiny pieces
that in a panic
i proved to be terribly under qualified
to fix them with duct tape and super glue
then they said
~just to rub salt in my already painful wound~
"from now on everything you see will only be in black and white"
that might not be so bad
at least until saturday
