There are so many ways to fix things up. To patch a thing so it doesn’t have any holes, or… still has them I guess but they’re covered. Sometimes though…sometimes the patch can define the thing. Can become the thing. The little fix put on to bridge a void became the defining characteristic of the thing. Like stories sometimes have a great big plot hole. They’re well thought-out and drawn-up but there’s some gaping void of logic somewhere. More times then not it’s okay cause the thing you came up with to fix it had to be good. Good enough to steal the show even. Musicians sometimes make their songs a little too short- like, they got a good chorus and can play it a couple times but gotta figure out what goes in between. That’s usually the best part of the song when all’s said and over with. Sure sometimes a patch-up job can be a pox. A scar that shows just how bad the stitch work was until the day you’re in the ground. Even in that case it defines the thing though. It’s ok to appreciate a thing cause it doesn’t have any holes or gaps but just know that it probably used to. Or will. Anything devoid of voids had a long road to get that way or has one coming.
