[information]

They will grow beaks.



[information]

In the cages on the balcony there were tiny elephants marked with words that said they were something else.



[information]

There were wagons they were not allowed to use. There was an engine that had no moving parts. There was a man who was painted incorrectly and a cloud that was broken in half.



[information]

They were larger. That’s why the picture had to be replaced. That’s why the trees had to be moved. That’s why there were never enough syllables.



[information]

They are able to use verbs when they return. They are able to use the color red. They are able to count up to the letter "g". They are able to measure the horizon.



[information]

A simple word that changes the distance they must travel, that describes the difference between the roof and the ruler.



[information]

Their faces replaced each time. The surface of the sky was not enough. They repeated the word “repeat” even when it was not necessary. They said the word “orange” even when it meant something different.



[information]

Thinks that food can be approximated. Thinks that the island can be moved around. Thinks that a dance is hidden inside each woman. Thinks that the clouds are repeated beneath the mountain. Thinks that the car is the wrong kind of machine.



[information]

The dimensions of the horse and the pyramid are only sometimes the same.



[information]

Can you tie your shoelace with one hand? Can you carry the water without using your legs? Is there distance trapped inside the mushrooms? Is there a story that only the hydrangeas can tell?



[information]

They were plural even before they entered the room.



[information]

They prepare themselves for the meal or journey or punishment. They prepare themselves for the woman and the flowers. They prepare themselves for what will be found once the rock is lifted.



[information]

There is a game that has a different name in different countries. There is a number they can use in different ways. There is a man who is a word that cannot be explained, and a woman who is really a map.
