Lisa Huffaker

A book page with the words greyed out by charcoal except this: "Eve / felt trapped / climbed out of the bathroom window and disappeared. / was gone for three days. / was found / had no intention of returning home at    a l  l / burst into tears. / tried to reform / secretly became the minister of    a new    religion   with   a congregation     of      one" The words are connected by white lines, with a red arrow pointing at the first word. There is a black and white photo of a woman sitting in a window on the top right of the page and a stamp with a bird on top of a red circle in the bottom right.
