Not the Actual Things but Only Their Representations

The portrait on the side of Maple Leaf looks less like a boy with a maple leaf for hair and more like a boy on fire.

Outside my kitchen window is a cage with a birdhouse inside. The top of the cage is open. Maybe birds will come back.

Outside the building, fake pandas are in the middle of eating fake bamboo. In the little play area, children climb up an elephant's ass and slide down his trunk into dirty sand. Exercise equipment surrounds this meeting point. Somewhere else stiff deer are supposedly running.
