Things I know for certain.
that whales breathe in and out to make waves,
that forgotten moths flap their wings
to make the stars,
a giant loom weaves the clouds and
when it rains the sky is licking
the earth like ice cream.
that neon lights are trails
left by fluorescent snails,
the wind is caused by mothers
blowing food cool,
lightning is made by babies kissing mirrors
and thunder is the vibration of God’s little tin house,
I know all this because
I read it in a Galapagos turtle’s eye.
