The Furnace- An Abstract Study of Possibilities

A good horseman
can ride any horse well.

He was able to juggle four plates
and sing at the same time.

Squirrels carry nuts
in their jowls. The boy

broke off a large chunk
of bread and ate it.

The blind man and his dog
are inseparable.

When the poor old fellow
got hit by a truck, his death

was instantaneous; the experience
seemed as insubstantial

as a dream. The dog
still sits on a cold streetcorner.

Why isn't the furnace
sending up any heat?
