Do You Like My Daddy's Apron? Press
I've been having weird dreams. Last night I cried on the subway home but my eyes were closed & I wasn't sleeping. Some things are sad. I don't want to talk about last night's dreams but I'll tell you about a dream I had a month ago:
The people we love turn into The Rests & if they slept: for every hour asleep they become 5 years younger.
So, if your loved one falls asleep for two hours, all of a sudden your wife or husband is 10 yrs younger. Inconsolably & irreversably, they transform back into children if you let them sleep for more than 5 hours.
So those who are not The Rests have to keep everyone awake, even though the normal people need to sleep. We work in shifts to keep The Rests awake. Shifts are tiring & necessary & worthwhile.
Oh, I am going to reading on Monday. Come with me? The lovely poets Dan Magers & Steven Karl will be joining me:
Please join us Monday February 11 at Reading Between A & B as we celebrate the the publication of Dara Wier's new collection, Remnants of Hannah from Wave Books!
