he knows stuff, facts,and figures
while i am astounded.the sun comes
out by the drawers. open they show
me birds and insects. did you know
they cross their fragile legs and tie
with cotton threads.
did you know that we are the only ones
who do not eat insects and that there
are more species of beetles than any
other creature. having lost the sexton
i despair while some tick.
they thought it was the soul from the dead.
i thought penguins were smaller and that
an elephant had more teeth than that.
you let me hold one; it was so heavy so you
show me the tusks too, and we talked about trunks
it was hot there and hungry so i went for lunch,
a sandwich, returned later to look through the
microscope.the man in the museum helped me.
there are fibres everywhere and when our coat
off he said there is a shower we cannot see only
later i saw a sputnick, yet i liked the mothths and
beetles best. so does the man in the museum.
