Drew (and Zoey)

 

Drew sits at the window. Zoey takes the seat beside him.

Drew: (points out the window) There is a bird in a tree.

Zoey: I’m sorry?

Drew: There is a bird in a tree … Or is the tree simply there for the bird?

Zoey: I think the bird …

Drew: (holds up a finger) You are going to say that because the bird moves and the tree does not, that the bird is the one who must be the subject, the one who provides the action, and the tree is merely awaiting the bird’s arrival. BUT! Does not the tree live longer?

Zoey: (nods slowly) It does …

Drew: So again, I ask, is the bird in the tree or does the tree exist for the bird?

Zoey: Errr … Both?

Drew: (frowns) I must contemplate this further.

Zoey: You’re welcome.
