Storms sound in emptiness, above and below and around. Radio crackles lonelier than silence, hollow snaps, evanescent particle pairs are born and die in the instant void. Stars are seldom, light dim, space falls away in widening gyres, all equations collapse to loss, all creation meaningless harmonics of empty tunes on random strings. Roar and silence. Roar and silence.
Across intergalactic gaps, dark energy draws tresses of her hair. The hiss of singularities echoes her goodbye. Her light dies at the edge of space, broken stars fade.
Everything blurs away. He cries, small warm human tears, and begins to heal.
