A & B
06/2010 

Once there was A & B.

One day A
climbed 
an enormous
exotic tree.

Not for any 
particular reason
other than boredom.

B had things
to attend to on the 
ground so he 
waved 
goodbye to A 
and moved
onward.

When A 
reached the top
he looked out 
and saw many 
wondrous things.

He saw
1
sun
2
lakes
3
rivers
4
valleys
5
mountains and

6
birds
flying
around
in
the 
sky.

A felt 
ten times bigger
up there
in the tree
by himself.

He liked it 
so much 
he decided to stay
a while.

Twenty years passed.

Then A climbed 
back down
the tree.

Not for any 
particular reason
other than boredom.

One afternoon
A ran into B 
at the supermarket 
and
B invited A
to tea and crumpets.

A happily accepted.

They sat together
at a simple
wooden table
drinking and
eating and laughing
about old
times.
