Be quiet: You’re talking.

Tell me something I don’t know.

That there are insects that can fly through the rain

without getting wet,

That Bing Crosby had the first tape recorder in America,

And Esther Williams hated the water.

That astronauts have the highest divorce rate,

Redheads need more anaesthetic than others,

Emily Dickinson didn’t leave her room for 12 years,

There's no word for art in the Tibetan language not associated with deity,

And Chinese doctors examine a patient’s tongue first.

Enlighten me.

Fill me with awe.

Share things incandescent.

Or stop talking.
