Where on Earth?
here on earth where animals
are not original thinkers.
I can a hear a squirrel in the ceiling
above me. People outside talk
just a little too loud for dawn.
A few cars and some wind making
the bare trees shiver. The sky
is silver blue. A little
girl out front asked her mother if the moon
was in outer space. The mother paused
for a long time. Everything is in outer space.
