i loved this when you read it to me, and wanted to comment.

open-ended yet so concrete. true drabbles are difficult; this is one of the best i've read.

the world hasn't ended. the light proves it. life goes on, faith's blood proves it. angel is moved to cry. how couldn't he be?

so sad. so hopeful. the beginning and the end. except not the end. the end of an era, more like.

leaves me wanting more, but knowing in my gut that it's enough by itself. all packed in, tight as a cinderblock and fluid as a stream. one line from faith gives it the weight it requires.
