EXCERPT:

Sometimes by moving around he tries to think about dragging the path behind him, like a
leash. It's not age. If things are made too easy for him, who does the making? Under what
conditions may a hero retreat without becoming a field? He can't decide. Landscape
overall heaves up, falls through, entangles, backslides, unpredicts. Friendly trees; enemy
trees; arboreal frenzies. The hero has to explain to the trees with force.
