Questions from Four Dimensions
By Diane Thiel

How many hours are there?

          Is this Planet Earth?

                                      How far is outer space?

                        Are we real?

          What’s your secret identity?

So we should only tell lies on April Fools’?

                                      If children are the future,
                                      does that mean you are the past?

          How do you make a table of continents?

                            Is that why grown-ups are grouchy –
                            because they’ve outgrown their lucky jackets?

Where is time, and how do we run out of it?
