The Giant Spacemoths

by Ari Collins


We never learned how they survived cold vacuum, or why they followed the light from the V3b rocketships of the eighties. Now we use gravboosts of course. Smooth, quiet, fast. And completely dark.

Though space is silent, sometimes I think I almost hear those translucent purple-black wings beating behind us. Searching for the flame.
