Birds are flying in my head.

And there is an alarm clock that wakes me up

with a sound like a pencil-tapping a table.

There is a really thin tree, tall as a skyscraper.

There is a book about yellow and orange butterflies –

really, really beautiful butterflies.

A bird with a body made out of the United States

and blue wings fly behind my eyes.

In my head there is a beach with grass instead of sand

and water that is made of ice.

There is a missing tooth and a gap.

Two plus two equals four is in my head

and so is the moon.

I believe in water and snow.
