Titles of works as they appear:
Which way to the Emerald lake? (cover)
If we stand very still, no one will notice
Are we there yet?
They are discussing environmental policies
The Pigeon River Hotel seemed so very far away
They gave me no chance to reply
From here we can see the Adriatic sea
Where I can be myself
In Montevideo they could be themselves
It produced what no other refractory in Beirut could
It was not the objects that bewitched him, it was the order in which they were arranged
We once watched the grassy plains, now we watch nothing
He traveled for some time without incident
Everything that reminds me of you makes me unbelievably sad
For Ethel
The things we left behind
The country we invented turned out to be the Canadian Rockies
How did we end up here?
We thought we knew a great deal, but really we knew nothing
The country we invented turned out to be just right
The longer I stood there, the less I understood
It made for a different vantage point
If only the Northern Hopping Mouse thought to look behind him
