A bag of components for make-believe.

Someone is missing, probably him. A boat to somewhere no one knows. An unknown captain leads us into danger. When she is good, she is mother. When she is bad, she is also mother. The bottom is frightening and dark. Animals talk in return. Animals love in return. You could join the animals. An island far away. You could wear wings and glide down. You could make a balloon to carry you up. You are as big as they are small. Someone beautiful chose you, will always choose you. Good adults need children. Good children can stand alone. Badness is injustice. You are just. Hold your breath. You will not drown. You can solve the puzzle for us. In your pocket is the piece. Even the lost ones will return.
