Maybe just the outskirts of love, like that strange blur of streets on the edge of a city that seems like a bit of a messy mesh of stores that aren't sure of themselves, and don't know if rent will come next month. Maybe like the girl ill-dressed for the party, doubting her choices as she pulls at her hem. But there was a version of love there, I'm sure of it, even just for that brief while.
