Ooh, past tense, and first-person plural. Daring. I'm into it so far.
This does an excellent job of portraying an inhuman viewpoint -- or no-longer-human (the ambiguity is part of the charm). It also manages to dispense with the notion of mapping, without becoming either a one-room wonder or too surreal to visualize. Good trick. In general, I like the balance of real and surreal, expected and alien.
However: while individual scenes are very evocative, they don't seem to come together into anything. Nothing is particularly resolved. Open-ended is great, but there has to be some sense of direction, ei? I really like what's here, but it isn't enough. I feel like I've seen two points of a tripod -- or perhaps three points of a line, which don't line up.
