I take off my wedding ring. Beneath it, the skin is white and smooth, like a scar. Contrary to what is said on your wedding day, circles do have a beginning and an end. They can even be broken. You have to look closely for the cracks. That's the spot where if you pull hard enough and tug long enough, it will snap off. The two sides will never meet again, at least not precisely the way it lined up before.
