I am a little girl
who lives in the sky.
My mom has a lot of children.
I am one of them.
I have many sisters and brothers.
My mom is the moon,
and we are the stars.
My dad died
so my mom has to watch
2,586,259 children.
My mom has to have
a big tub
for all of us to take a bath
one by one.
She has to read to all of us
and recites the words
over and over.
She gets tired.
