    “There were once two sisters
    who were not afriad of the dark
    because the dark was full of the other's voice
    across the room,
    because even when the night was thick
    and starless
    they walked home together from the river
    seeing who could last the longest
    without turning on her flashlight,
    not afraid
    because sometimes in the pitch of night
    they'd lie on their backs
    in the middle of the path
    and look up until the stars came back
    and when they did,
    they'd reach their arms up to touch them
    and did.”

    “There once was a girl who found herself dead.
    She peered over the ledge of heaven
    and saw that back on earth
    her sister missed her too much,
    was way too sad,
    so she crossed some paths
    that would not have crossed,
    took some moments in her hand
    shook them up
    and spilled them like dice
    over the living world.
    It worked.
    The boy with the guitar collided
    with her sister.
    "There you go, Len," she whispered. "The rest is up to you.”
