We need to talk.

“You woke up, washed your face, put on your clothes,
went by your business,
Shaking hands, passing smiles, counting coin…
Got a secret?
Can’t tell nobody.
Carry it close, dawn to dusk.
Pick up tomorrow,
All over again.
Ain’t nothing at all.”
Daughter Maitland – St. Louis Blues. ‘Boardwalk Empire’

Cracks were already going all the way through the sky.
