Brother Paul! look!
—but he rushes to a different
window.
The moon!

I heard shrieks and thought:
What’s that?

That’s just Suzanne
talking to the moon!
Pounding on the window
with both fists:

Paul! Paul!

—and talking to the moon.
Shrieking
and pounding the glass
with both fists!

Brother Paul! the moon!
