And the evening shuddered, since everything is connected.I was licking the cream from the universal saucer.
with the elegant, cosmic, and grand.
How the bonnet was warm on your bottom! And the metal
continued tick-ticking though the engine was off.
About birds, Davies is more serious and might just offer the best thing there is to say about those creatures' essential nature and mystery:
Indeed the birdsmay have broken the sky
those birds were all released again. Such buoyancy.They go on forever like that. How else to say thank youin a foreign place?
Words split in our grasp.The sparrows flew away so fast a camera could not catch them.
