2 Works in Paradises Lost - Ursula K. Le Guin
“When the ship left, the nine hundred and four people on the planet had chosen to be there. To die there. Some of them had already died there.”
Ursula K. LeGuin, “Paradises Lost”
The other three thousand-odd people had chosen to fly blindly onward aboard the ship.
To die there.
There is no away.
