from INFORMATION


INFORMATION

If the word says "chicken" the duck will not appear. If the word says "two" then something else can be added. Each time the word is a verb another door can be opened. Sometimes nouns can be picked up along the way.



INFORMATION

Had a different face each time. Was given a word to speak and a gesture that was hers alone. Was taken with them into different rooms where she looked through different windows and saw things she had not seen before. She was allowed to use the doors but she never did. She was not allowed to touch what she saw.



INFORMATION

Was an animal when it came back. Was a store that sold mushrooms in the desert. Was a piece of sky that had fallen. Was a man in a bear suit or a bear in a man suit. Was a tree that they used as a bridge. Was a flower that resembled her in every way.



INFORMATION

The surface not the way it is described. The women more than are allowed. Each animal recognized if it enters again. The box they hide in full of numbers or colors.



INFORMATION

Allows only one person with each name into his life. So when he met another Nancy he kept his distance. And when Bob offered him a job he pretended he didn’t hear. He was never able to figure out his own name.



INFORMATION

Has to start with a small truck held in her hand. Has to start with an eye reflecting her own face. Has to start with words shaped like an oven. Has to start with a tree made of bricks.



INFORMATION

Because of the way she looked she was looked at. What they saw was only sewn together. The distance between her arms was different. The machine they found inside her no longer worked.



INFORMATION

Reads only books that show a dog on the cover.



INFORMATION

Blue a way of making the car work. Red the exception to the rule of trees. What was green was only a concept. They entered through the orange door each time.



INFORMATION

Begins like the bear begins, like a cloud stuck in a room, like a car that has no engine. Begins with each part separate, with each wall broken, with each ceiling filled with water. When she speaks it is because she cannot keep the words inside.



INFORMATION

Can smell the differences between them. They each have sounds that are hidden inside. Once they are opened they are no longer the same. Sometimes they can be sewn back up.



INFORMATION

The trail the wheels left was wrong. The man was correct only if he faced in the other direction.



INFORMATION

There are spanish papers and chinese papers and papers that are given out for free. There is a word that they repeat whenever a word is required. There is a woman who enters at the same time every day. And an animal she is always compared with.



INFORMATION

What one sees through the fence is not what is on the other side.



INFORMATION

Thinks that the door is the way to explain it. Thinks that the animal can be folded in half. Thinks that each woman is different.




Bob Heman is full of words. He lives most of his life on the page. The rest of the time he lives in Brooklyn.
