When a mountain turns into ash and blows away in the wind, the people who want to live in the volcano have to learn to live in one dimension instead of three. Welcome to Mount Mazuma, which blew up 2000 years ago and spread itself thin across the land for 1500 kilometres. Halfway to the edge of the new flat mountain it made, swallows are living in the mountain still.

Poets, take heart.
