This is a collection of 24 micro and short stories all involving geese. Tropes are subverted in humorous and absurd ways as geese (in all their borrowed forms) occupy the narrative limelight. Fables, historical texts, melodramas, and more are decontextualized and defamiliarized as geese occupy familiar spaces typically constrained by text, language, or other created forms of being (representation). Borrowed forms and structures inhabited by geese expose the absurdity of human projection. Human perspectives are also forced to coexist, tolerate, and merge with the existence of geese.
