It turned upside down. There were others with him—he was suffocating. Ta-a-way-te flailed, but they held his arms until he stopped. Mills and Pratt assured him it wouldn’t last long.

Bear’s Heart—I dreamed they tied a pencil to my hand. I dreamed they tied the ocean to our beds. Drawing was now their war. The past brought regret and sadness because it was far away. They remembered the cries of their families as they left. How could they draw what they heard? Tourists came to the fort to look at the prisoners.
