“The dream started when I came back,
interrupting the night ward with a
wildcat’s screech, the bed jumping
like a gallery of tin cups in the county jail.
I was dreamless and serene as long as I soaked
my sleep with liquor or morphine.
The dreams cut off like an unplugged TV.”

― from “The Lazarus Dream” by David Mohan
