I was underneath a giant telescope

I was underneath a giant telescope, or maybe it was a microscope, and I was just a tiny person standing on the glass slide. Anyway, it was a blue, labyrinthine mechanism, a monolith inseparable from the structure of the room. I looked up into the lens. It opened up, and it dispensed a book. As...

I go down small steps

I go down small steps and pay and man and come into this room and it’s just this sheet of ice with three other people on it and it’s a little too small and it’s just ice and then wall, but i get on my skates and go and it feels like the ceiling’s too...

dream about trying to drive

dream about trying to drive from (?) to los angeles with no directions — calling mom to get c’s number to ask, but then second-guessing whether c would be the best person to call.  probably not.  had seen mom earlier, elaborate dream… pulling onto a highway, maybe dusk but cloudy and light, impending rain, thinking,...

The jungle has finally overtaken the city.

The jungle has finally overtaken the city. The dead are attacking, and you, the living, look to me for guidance. I usher you into the vault, but you are too slow and stupid. So I fight the zombies, doing my damnedest to save you all. They are persistent and numerous; but I am too fast,...

Visited by a child aged Mozart

Visited by a child aged Mozart. He had this room filled with “music boxes” made of wooden fruits and vegetables. Each box played a melody associated with the fruit or vegetable. I asked him if I could have the apples and oranges for Keri and so he wrote down the music notation from old tattered...

A dream where I am home

A dream where I am home with my boyfriend for a day an we’re sitting in front of the bottom of an elevator shaft wrapped up in an olive green blanket and it’s warm before a searing panic hits me and I realize I’ve used the other half of my ticket and now if I...

Hide and seek with dad

Hide and seek with dad, in a bright theatre with a bed in the lobby. Playing, jumping, crying—purple curtains. Chasing questions. Groups of players changing from one location to the next. I wake longing to have more time with my daddy-O.
