*My mother always talked to me a lot about the sky.
She liked to watch the clouds in the day
and the stars at night.
Especially the stars.
We would play a game sometimes,
a game called, 'what's beyond the sky.'
We would imagine darkness, or a blinding light,
or something else we didn't know how to name.
But of course that was just a game...
There's nothing beyond the sky.
The sky just is,
and it goes on and on,
and we play all of our games beneath it.*
