A life, once ripped apart, was sewn together in haphazard manner to keep it going. The seams were half-hearted and the pieces put together in haste, some in the wrong place or facing the wrong way. In this way it sustained function for some time, but that quick fix job was not meant to last forever. The seams are coming loose, slowly. The problem is that in order to properly mend the life these pieces make, it will have to be completely taken apart.
(And who has time for that?)
