I wake up with a start, without an alarm clock. The clock reads 8am, the perfect time to start my day. My body knows me perfectly. I close my eyes for a few seconds to remember my dream. I was in a crowd of people, on a Hollywood television set. I pulled him out of my pocket and he started gnawing holes into my hands. It didn't even hurt. I open my eyes and see the sun.
It's not even noon yet and I am crying myself to sleep.
