(the story so far)
He had come prepared:
- a suitcase containing ten miles of sky
- a tiny banjolele
- and a heart made from blossom and cloud.
- to win the heart of Deedee Maroon,
who lived in the city of FarTooWideAndLong.
But Deedee was unmoved:
- the sky was too pale (and contained no thunder)
- the songs were too shrill
- and the heart disintegrated in her thin, crushy hands.
