How to be Sure

This is really crazy
but underneath everybody doing something,
all the music going on, the chatter,
reflections of the sky, the time of year,
standing around looking for direction (or something)
you can stand silently sever head from body
at the neck
silence the voice
to the seed
with wings and arms
in trenches
dug by girls.
