Crackle and Hum

I will line them all up,
the many versions of me
you broke, and couldn’t,
and tried to break again,
and I will
whisper them stories,
tuck them in and talk of tall
tales of you and me and love,
and all manner of make believe.
They will know of the happy
endings that never came,
the ones still waiting
in the rain outside the lines,
behind police tape, and inside
dial tones too weak to do anything
other than crackle and hum.
