Caught Up

Written by Jacob Ibrag

Turning away from the window, she asks him,

‘do you ever think about where we came from? What if

we’re all that’s left in the hollow space of dead solar systems?’

Grabbing another bite of his salted caramel ice cream, he takes a

seat next to her and answers, ‘see that’s the problem with people.

We’re caught up with retired planets and what if’s rather than

concentrating on the souls who love us enough to kill.’
