A drop of blood in the sand and then all we have to do is wait: and then one night like that story about a beanstalk to the next world, a forest
Sometimes childlike wonder does provide an answer
All of this used to be an ocean once
And could be again
But that would take a watering can’s worth of the stuff, at least
