"Starship" from the Blue Lexicon

STARSHIP: Any vessel, canvas, or structure that acquires motion under the influence of starlight. The stars need not be visible to the naked or polished eye so long as the sails are properly shredded and singed. When the sails are intensified, the starship accelerates. When the sails are diminished, the starship brakes. Manuevering is done by singing and desinging the sails after patterns derived from the Estonian Astronomical Ephemerides.

Gobs of air come away from the sky when congealed boredom is applied to it. The pockets of vacuum are dangerous to birds, children, and other flying objects. Those pockets can be herded into Abscence Farms by any of the techniques developed by Mrs. Landgrave's Kindergarten R&D Labs.

The gobs of air, themselves, are soluble in soil and grass and are flammable in sea water. Special care must be taken that they are removed in specially designated locations.

Stop the Enforcement

The girders at the top of the tunnel enforce the openness of the passage. A smell of dust is embedded in the air and impresses itself on your nose, your eyes, your sense of danger. If the girders relax, then the tunnel will consummate its duration in a closing, a crushing, a deprival of passage.

The tunnel releases into a space without girders or the need for them. A door separates the room from the dust of the passage. The capacity for sight is provided by the strips circling the walls, hugging them, flaring from them. The requirement for patience exists in the room until the meeting begins.

The concrete-flavored gelatin is not favored by archaic practitioners of indiscrete toddlerhood. Sprinkling ambiguities on top of it doesn't make the texture any less illegal, but it does rebuild the aftertaste.
