The weather giant

i'm six miles tall

jets cruise past my head

i can hold 20 city blocks in the palm of my hand
the sears tower is smaller than my pinkie

most clouds barely reach my knees

when i sit i can wave my hand thru them
disperse them by blowing

i can make a tornado by twirling my finger

(hurricanes, though, are as tall as
me standing full height
and wider than i can throw a rock)

i can walk around the world in two hours
the ocean comes up only to my thighs

only the Himalayas are taller than me

(the ISS space station is 200 miles high)
