  • I knew they would burst, I knew
    the weight of the entire sky was too heavy a burden
    but I still hoped that they would endure
    make it all the way to the edge of the universe...

    (from Daddy’s Girl by Lín)

    Where are we going? she asked
    Just up the road, he replied
    Where the fork leads away?
    Yes, my dear

    How far is it? she queried
    Not too far, he returned
    How long before we get there?
    Not long now

    Who is coming with us?
    Just me & you
    Who else is going to be there?
    Just us, sweetheart

    What will we do when we get there?
    Spend a few days having fun
    What will we do when it’s over?
    Remember, love
