"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."
