from INFORMATION


INFORMATION

Before foreplay there was only kissing.



INFORMATION

The way it begins gives no clue as to how it will end. The bears had been repaired but they still could not be used.



INFORMATION

Polka dots or cats. Stripes or bicycles. Dogs filled with trees. A car that had been buried too many times.



INFORMATION

There were ducks instead of windows. There were mirrors instead of chickens.



INFORMATION

Thinks that the food can be retrained.



INFORMATION

Click on the double dachshund. Remove the thread from the stone. Teach the cars to whisper. Lift the river onto the remotest barn.



INFORMATION

Plays a game with numbers that are too heavy to move.



INFORMATION

The bears cannot be seen from the air. The sea cannot be seen from the tree. The car is farther away each time. The mountain changes the man who hides behind it.



INFORMATION

The cars expected inside the houses, inside the mountain, inside the woman. The light had to be removed each time. Only the trees were symmetrical. The journey ended where the man's skin began.



INFORMATION

Familiar things are arranged by size or color or purpose. Unfamiliar things are kept in the order in which they arrived.



INFORMATION

The door begins at the edge of the room. The window begins outside of the yard. Where there is a fence there are also men. If there are enough trees the sky will not approach.



INFORMATION

They are given books with large type and words that must be repeated. They are given numbers that cannot yet be explained.
