Somewhere Only We Know
I slept on the sofa in the living room and dreamt a thousand lives. Lives had been encapsulated into that small time frame of an hour. I tore down the draping vines in Babylon. I forgave others while I violated others. I held her. I struck down the law. I let her go. I persecuted the minorities and freed the masses. I slayed the dragon. I became the dragon.
In that capsule Sinbad and Beowulf would have wished to have my bravery and my bravado.
Wake and die.
