This was a strange little piece that I really did not get.
People, who could be criminals or dissidents are sent to these ships, or maybe it's a space station, with the understanding that they will eventually kill themselves by flying a ship into a black hole.
But, while waiting for the ultimate day, they are free to pursue their passions, be it art or music or something else.
Honestly, I did not get this story as it blew right over me.
As always, I feel the weak link in the story was me. For whatever reason I did not connect with it. The writing was lovely but the characters did not jump off the page and into my brain here.
