tell the flowers — they think the sun loves them. The grass is under the same simple-minded impression about the rain, the fog, the dew — and when the wind blows, it feels so good they lose control of themselves and swobtoggle wildly around, bumping accidentally into their slender neighbors. Forgetful little lotus-eaters, solar-powered hydroholics, drawing nourishment up through stems into their thin green skin, high on the expensive chemistry of mitochondrial explosion, believing that the dirt loves them, the night, the stars — reaching down a little deeper with their pale albino roots, all dizzy Gillespie with the utter sufficiency of everything — they don’t imagine lawn mowers, the four stomachs of the cow, or human beings with boots who stop to marvel at their exquisite flexibility and color. They persist in their softheaded hallucination of happiness. But please don’t mention it. Not yet. So what if they are wrong? So what if you are right?
