Story 1

 

I dream another me exists in the burning house, reading aloud from what I have written.  Broken glass.  A sad film.  The awkward silence.

 

I had always thought night would feel like:  an electric current, the most startling numbness in every fingertip.  Throughout the landscape, a small fire would still be blazing.

 

But somehow in the dream I’ve grown wings.  Tell me, does this change everything—?

 

 I want to use them so badly, but I don’t know how—
