Sputnik Sweetheart

I'm writing this letter at an outdoor cafe on a side street in Rome, sipping espresso as thick as the devil's sweat, and I have this strange feeling that I'm not myself anymore. It's hard to put it into words, but I guess it's like I was fast asleep, and someone came, disassembled me, and hurriedly put me back together again.
