Silent Places

High in the Minnewaska sky

My friend took me here

My friend taught me tricks

I watched ½ a movie with his sister

My friend on a rock out of sight

My head on a shoe

This terrible girl

From yesterday not here with us now

I ask him the name of this place

I pretend to hear him answer

When a giant bird

Bigger than anything

Glides past us

Perfectly still

Except for its head

I cannot possibly do all the things I want to do

Listen to me

Perfectly still

Except for its head

There are too many things

Too many things

And I can see all of them
