We hear a house finch
He tells me that the air is mostly nitrogen
The air is mostly something
The air is mostly phosphorescent
I hang all over him as he puts on his sock
And suddenly he goes ahh and makes this godawful sound
and tries to get away from me
He thought there was a carapace in his sock
Like a beetle? Like a cockroach
He said carapace though
I had never in 20 years heard this sound!
What did you think the air was?
Around you, mostly.
