Were gone, he'd stare up at the
Sky and see the stars, and wonder
If there was another ape, a greater
Being, who had lit the sky that

Stephanie

Looked at me, her lids half-masted, bedroom

Upon a shirt that I could wear." I gazed
Back at her, pleased and thrilled. "You
May have this face to place wherever
You would like."
