Anatomy of CloudsWhat is the truth behind cheese after midnight?The air is too thick and it won't let me in,I told you so, it became sore, Years it clung onto my teeth.Don't... don't wear hips with that darling,You should roll a glass on that rash.No!

Weather PatternsIf you sing to me darling thatThere are no clouds in your sky,Then I will tell you your sky is beautiful;But quite boring, no?And clear skies are fleeting...Let me take you somewhere with More interesting weather.The frequent storms swirl the clouds likeFull-fat milk in coffee,Making myriad shapes above our heads.There's a beauty in knowing thatThere will always be thunder along some time soon.Yes we will get rained on Occasionally, butWe will always have something interesting to Talk about.
