Astral Game Of Fetch

she looked up into the clear night sky
and was pleased to see sirius,
happily wagging back at her.

he had a large comet in his mouth,
twinkly star dust oozing from it,
and dropped it expectedly at her feet.

"oh, i see," she said.
"you want to play fetch, huh?
okay, boy!"

and she threw the comet as far as she could,
praying she'd at least make it out of the solar system.

he bolted wildly after the comet
and she was reminded of just how much
she loved playing fetch with him.

the only problem, though, is that it
took him light years to retrieve,
which wasn't a bad thing
given how much energy he had.
