Contemplation of Existence By Alexis Capelle, age 9

Why are we here?

Where are we from?

How come some animals don't have a thumb?

Why why?

I ask my Mom


She doesn't answer

She's staring at me

As if

I were growing another thumb


She doesn't know

Neither does Dad

This is bad



Will tell my why


Why why?
