IUD, Condoms, You

Illustration by Alessandro Gottardo

Maggie says I’m still in love with you. In a tiny voice just above a whisper, she tells me she walked into a pawnshop yesterday and almost bought a gun. We’re lying in bed in her apartment and I’m just about to fall asleep when she begins telling me about her day, and in particular the part of her day when she walked into a pawnshop and almost bought a gun.
