An Entry from a Mouse’s Dream Diary
So it’s true. Mice do dream. Of drowning. A drowning dream. This is the season of water. Of fractious storms and troubled air. I run along the floor, pressing close to the skirting boards and wall. Avoiding wires and cords and shoes, baskets, books and magazines. Slipping under a newspaper, and then I stop. Catch my breath. Sniff the air. It smells of green sky pools. Whole oceans wanting to flood the floor. I chase the sodden light down the hall, floorboards swollen and stained. Around the corner, and a final dash toward the big clock. The clock. The clock. I race up the pendulum, tick and tock. Tick and tock. Hickory. Dickory. Dock. The clock strikes 8. Am I awake?
