Now silence rings in their place so loud a stone can hear it in Arkansas. So why not the men inside the sky who only hear the roar beneath their wings that rip the clouds? Who believe the distance is theirs for the way it turns the heavens into a high of feeling nothing at all? In which they have everywhere to turn as excellent pilots—really superb—with nowhere to go.
