Where Should We Look?

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀—for Baby Zoë
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where should we look for cars, for cars?
Baby, where should we look for cars?
Whether bigger than theirs or as wee as ours,
there’s no road in here for cars to ride.
Cars belong outside, outside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Cars belong outside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where should we look for rain, for rain?
Baby, where should we look for rain?
Since it’s bound to be off chasing rainbows again,
there’s no sky in here rain could make come undried.
Rain belongs outside, outside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Rain belongs outside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Where should we look for hate, nasty hate?
Baby, where should we look for hate?
Mommy and Daddy’s love for you is so great,
there’s no heart in here hate could find room to hide.
Hate belongs outside, outside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀Hate belongs outside.
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
