Birds that don't fly, that are attached to each other, that don't land, plants that bloom even with their roots exposed. In addition to the real impossibility of the existence of these creatures, they also refer us to the pleasure and pain of being connected to each other, of flying without having a landing or rest, the need for our roots but the danger of exposing our core and the intense desire to do it.
