It’s an animal with memories. It doesn’t have a tail, it has protruding eyes and strong extremities. Its skin is slimy. I try to catch it but it’s impossible. It always gets away with ease. Secure in its ability to escape, it did not expect to be kicked. The force of the blow robs it of all grace, it no longer exudes strength. It resembles a piece of fabric being blown in the wind. It has teeth, big enough to be noticed. They are all still accounted for. It’s a frog. It is accompanied by four beings. They do not have a tail, but they do have arms and are not humans. They love to eat at the table. They love to eat lunch together. They savor the flavors with their long tongues. The food can be capricious and unpredictable. A stereo is playing in the background. There is a large ficus on the left. While they eat, they do not talk. They are not frogs but they could easily be mistaken for one of them.
