Mosaic (excerpt)
By Sean Critchfield

Give them to me.
All the pieces of your broken heart.
Give them to me.
I’ll take them.
All the rough-hewn misshapen bits of your shattered dreams.
Give them to me.
I will take them.
Give them to me.
They are wanted here.
All the parts of your misspent childhood. All the regrets of ticking seconds behind you.
Give them to me.

And we will build a cathedral. A stained glass window of who we are as tall and as beautiful as it should be.
