  10. An enclosed veranda or peristyle.
  11. A boarding house that rents by the hour.
  12. A private jet: curved, creamy surfaces, a leather-enclosed cocoon.
  13. Subterranean baths, built within caves hollowed out by hot springs that plume beneath the surface of the sea.

  15. A motel room along the interstellar highway.
  16. A cage.

  25. A room that in memory serves in stead of home.
