INFORMATION

Each carries something familiar they are afraid of. They step into the outline of the car that is all that is left. Soon it will only be another part of the forest they are lost in. If they could find the sky they think they could use it as a map.


INFORMATION

Uses the door as an explanation or the explanation as a door. Uses the man to mark the distance and the distance to describe the man. Finds a woman beneath each building and a building in each woman’s hand. Walks more slowly each time the vehicle speeds up.


INFORMATION

Small windows buried in the forest.


INFORMATION
                               for Cindy

She wasn’t sure if she had gotten smaller or if the bears had gotten larger.


INFORMATION

To move one word to change the purpose of, to change the meaning of, to change the door that must be opened, or the window that must be kept closed.


INFORMATION

Folds its wings, arms, paper. Lifts its feet and stones. Enters the building each time it becomes a church.


INFORMATION

When they enter the house the house changes. The dog they climb inside of is made out of wood. Each of the trees contains a finite amount of water. They use the light the stars lost to power their machines.


INFORMATION

The logic of the spoon. The diameter of the chicken.


INFORMATION

They had to open the floor. They had to lift the tree. They had to turn on the closet.


INFORMATION

Most of the people who start the journey will arrive. The woman sleeps in the skin the leopard slept in when it was alive. There is also a square of color that the travelers left behind.


INFORMATION

The first map was full of cars. The second had no edges. The third kept growing once it was unfolded.


INFORMATION

Brings light to the animals and water to the rocks. Brings a machine that can never be turned off. Brings a man who can be repeated and a woman who cannot. Brings some eggs for them to measure.


INFORMATION

The bird inhabits the machine. The man is what they think the mountain is. Each door only an idea they never had before. Sometimes one is large enough to enter.


INFORMATION

Is required to eat whatever they bring. Sometimes her mouth must be adjusted.
