you came by to collect something
something you’d left behind

I’d left it, you said,
because it was broken

but now you had an idea
you could mend it

so you wanted it back

take it, I said
take it back
you’re welcome to it
I have no use for it anyway

I hadn’t understood why
you’d left it in the first place

what had you imagined I’d want
with something broken?
