Artwork by Adrian Macinca"We must make
more mystery!"-
says the organization
of the nebulae.

"We must gulp

says the syndicate
of the black holes.

"We must fight
more darkness!"-
says the association
of the heavenly bodies.

"Play your roles,
my living marionettes,"
says the Universe,
"just play your roles…"
