INFORMATION

The numbers continuous only when they contain no system. The frog is frozen the moment it arrives. What it means is what the woman says it means. What she believes is only what she has been told.


INFORMATION

“See you yesterday,” he said and true to his word he did and so things changed and I didn’t see him today after all and so didn’t write this down.


INFORMATION

The bird lifted in a different way and wrapped in cloth or placed inside a tree that was otherwise empty. This experience called “breathing” even though that was not what it was.


INFORMATION

The door only wishful sleeping. The window a lapse in their memory.


INFORMATION

When it is whole it can catch the wind and hold it. Its surface the only way the wind can be described. There are different winds wherever they travel. They have names like “Valley Breath” or “Moon Touch” or “Otto”. When they are spoken the traveler’s dreams are like loaves of bread that can never be opened.


INFORMATION

The bears are only model bears they put in the cars to make them look real. The cars are all empty inside. The boy pushes them around the city he must unroll in order to use. When he is done he rolls it up again.


INFORMATION

Finds great thoughts inside the dictionary. Finds dinosaurs inside the birds. Finds a box outside of the man. Finds a woman who has no explanation.


INFORMATION

There are no women in his poems. There are no frogs or bears or princesses. The car no longer knows how to move. The only boat is filled with water. The sky is not connected to what he sees. When he moves it continues to follow.


INFORMATION

What passes by is a tree or small lake.


INFORMATION

Thinks the same word is required each time, even though any word will actually do. The row of doors is replaced with a row of windows, and then with a row of bears. The vehicle they are given is not fast enough to ever catch up.


INFORMATION

Enters each of the rooms wearing a different mask, carrying a different box, leading a different animal to the window that is never open.


INFORMATION

The basic bear contains no extra rooms. It can be carried easily to where the clouds cannot harm it.


INFORMATION

The man with the hat is how far they must travel. The animal is how wide they must become.



BOB HEMAN continues. His words are all that remain.
