People and things, child. People with things. People with people and things. A red thing: dot.
People-made things. Tools, child. Things not people-made: a cardinal in Kansas.
A red thing: tip of a lit cigarette in dark. Sigh of lungs.
Oh, child: a rug dyed red.
The People of the Things: think of all the things in just one American home. The home's brick chimney, red.
Things people know/don't know/deny/believe/don't want to know. They don't want to know, child.
Well, here we are.
P.S. Red light!
