Maggie says I’m still in love with you, but then Maggie says a lot of things. In a tiny voice just above a whisper, she told me yesterday she walked into a pawnshop and almost bought a gun. We were lying in bed, in her apartment and I was just about to fall asleep when she began telling me about her day, and in particular the part of her day when she walked into a pawnshop and almost bought a gun. Suddenly I was no longer about to fall asleep.
