Rigel, Betelgeuse, and Orion. There was no finer church, no finer choir, than the stars speaking in silence to the many consumptives silently condemned, a legion upon the dark rooftops.

They were there, each one alone in conversation with the stars, mining ephemeral love from cold and distant light.
