When will the first day end?
We've been waiting so long for the light. Now we want bodies and minds, lovers and novels. We are hoping for intrigue and also peace and also war. We want it all but we don't want to wait. We are willing to fight. We are hoping for increasingly greater amounts of the things we enjoy. Surely God will provide it all, on silver plates, beneath the black skies, forever.
