The night before last. That morning again, after a brief return to sleep. Last night again. That sunuvabitch the Sandman has been giving me bad dreams.
Saturday morning’s dream I only remember one part. Annoyance dream. I was hungry and nobody was helping so I went to cook some freezer fried chicken in the oven (this is something I almost never eat IRL). Somebody was already cooking something and I just let my tray partially squish theirs. When it was time to get the chicken out, I was like, oh shit, I turned up the heat so the stuff somebody else was making is probably burned. I tried to get it all out quick as I could.
But my dad was in the way and didn’t know what to do with himself. He needed to get from one side of the opened oven door to the other, and was so befuddled I had to tell him every step of the action like he was a trained dog.
Sunday morning I was in a brutal fight at a house party and my very young nieces got their throats cut. Not lethally, we had to apply pressure to their tiny necks while also not suffocating them, until the authorities arrived. Waking time arrived before help did.
