Counting the Stars and the Telephone Poles….

 I like the stars. It’s the illusion of permanence, I think. I mean, they’re always flaring up and caving in and going out. But from Here I can pretend… I can pretend that things last. I can pretend that lives last longer than moments. Gods come and Gods go. Mortals Flicker and flash and fade. Worlds don’t last; and stars and galaxies are transient, fleeting things that twinkle like fireflies and vanish into cold and dust. But I can pretend.
