..For your heart's desire
..The path for your life to take
..A majestic night to slumber upon
..And capture the glimmers of hope that project onto this world
..As both the Moon and the Sun illuminate magic
..And don't blink
When the candle of life is lit, watch and observe. Look at the sparks and flares of memories fade and cascade as it returns back into the Earth. Do not fear the heat yet do not resist it, let it blend and kindle into yourself. Grow and breathe progress, go and create rifts that will blaze asunder.

There's a song we memorized to the last word and a dance we made up to go with each verse. We had carefully-calculated street-football teams that were as evenly matched as they could possibly be.

Neither in the eyes of the boy nor his mother.
