And Now to Earthworm
Me? Earthworm. I point to myself with the boneless arm that is my body.
I am bound to silence, save my weekly weather forecast.
And now I am at work. And I straighten my tie and look.
I look into the camera just before it begins to roll. And I blink my eyes.
Now I broadcast, pink from the palm of a wrinkled hand.
It has rained. I know this because I am out of earth.
Please do not return me to soil just yet, for I am at work.
It might rain again.
And now, I have said all I can say regarding the weather.
And I return to earth in silence.
