13…When stars fall
“A star falls from the sky and into your hands.
Then it seeps through your veins and swims inside
your blood and becomes every part of you.
And then you must put it back into the sky.
And it’s the most painful thing you’ll ever have to do and that you’ve ever done.
But what’s yours is yours. Whether it’s up in the sky or here in your hands.
And one day, it’ll fall from the sky and hit you in the head real hard and that time,
you won’t have to put it back in the sky again.”
