“You watched a collage film by baker b. called “Blood Dr.” John Lockfry 01. What did you think of it?”
“Confusing,” he said. “Bizarre. I don’t understand any of it, really.”
“Well, you obviously remember Jacobi’s cabin within,” continued Carrcassonnee. “You crossed the ash line to enter, with Benji back then. How is Benji anyway?”
“I don’t know,” replied John Lockfry 01.
“I have a picture of Benji here, actually,” the great olive being then said. “Perhaps you will recognize it. Let me put it against that far wall, above Baker Blinker’s bed she sometimes uses while staying in my Collagesity. Oh, it appears she is still sleeping there… didn’t see her, ha ha.”
John Lockfry 01 pivots to view the picture above a still drowsing
Baker Blinker Karl. His curiosity piqued, he gets up. “Is it okay if I take a closer look?”
“Maybe we should rouse Baker Blinker first. Baker Blinker?” Carrcassonnee pauses. “Baker?” She paused again. “Well, I hate to wake her up from such a sound sleep, so go ahead and approach the picture. Just do it quietly.”
John Lockfry 01 gets up and moves toward the picture, stopping just in front of the bed. He stands there for a moment…
…and then returns to his seat in front of Carrcassonnee. He speaks to John Lockfry 02. “That’s the picture in the cabin. You remember, don’t you?”
“We don’t exactly have the same memories, Past Lockfry.” he responds. “I remember entering the cabin with a dog and seeing a picture of a human on the wall. It is backwards for me. I stand outside the magic circle now, looking in wistfully.”
“But that’s the dog Benji,” reinforces John Lockfry 01. “From the movie.”
“Yes, that’s how I entered the cabin. With Benji.” John Lockfry 02 stares at John Lockfry 01, wondering if he understands the ramifications of what he’s saying.
Carrcassonnee attempts to explain. “John Lockfry 01, we’re in a collage film right now, as I speak. Collagesity is a perpetual collage. It doesn’t stop at the movie theater up in Collagesity Heights any longer. It is here with us. It is now. It is. But we better talk about Crabwoo. That’s in [Blood Dr.] as well. Let me put the image in your mind this time.
John Lockfry 01 lurches back. “Whoa… yeah, I remember that. What the heck?”
“Crabwoo,” Carrcassonnee repeats.
