All I could gather.
Problem was I couldn’t get him to stay either.
The patches wouldn’t live.
Tried to sneak pieces
into other men. Kiss me. This way.

so I can collect more for my stitched one.
Don’t know who we are anymore.
Hunched, scouring. Snatched parts from me to add to my amalgam.
Real him didn’t recognize me because I was missing. Then I noticed, even he was made of bits.
