WE SHOULD PROBABLY DANCE.

    Frank Baez says the poem is a bird/
   we capture with our hands/ and that
   sometimes we squeeze it too hard/ and
   destroy it/ and sure/ that's a cool metaphor
   but most days I feel like I'm the bird
   being squeezed/ slowly/ squashed by
   an invisible force/ invisible hands/
   according to science/ a large part of
   the universe is invisible/ according to
   science we can't see much/ we're pretty
   blind/ according to science we're kind of
   in the dark/ and if we're in the dark I say
   whatever/ it's okay/ I say we should probably
   party/ I say we should probably dance.
