counting stars – D.e.e.L

seven…seven…nine…sixteen…twenty. and the stars then disappear. and then the counting becomes translucent to its meaning. are you still counting? the daughter asks the father. i’m on a million! he responds. a million!! she replies. and then they both laugh at how amazing that could be, him laughing at her innocence, her laughing out of joy, joy that her father is the greatest counter the world has ever seen.
