u buy thgs and u keep em clean. u take care of em. u keep em in a special place. special pocket. away from keys and coins and shytes. away from other thgs dat shld be kept clean and taken care of as well. they they get scratched. and scratched again. and again. and again. soon - u dun care about em, any more. u dun giv a flyin shyte about em any longer. u dun keep em in a special place, no more. no more special pocket. u throw em in the bag wit everythg else. they've surpassed their form and become nothg but function.
ppl r like dat. u meet em and keep em clean. in a special place. special pocket. and then u start to scratch em. not on purpose. sometimes u jst drop em by accident or forget which pocket they r in. or u even forget they exist. but after the first scratch, it's all downhill from there.
u see past their form. they become function. they r a purpose.
only the essence remains.
