The End of the World I

Watching a spectacular light show in the night sky. It’s like Star Wars – the ballistic missile shield, not the film – but is caused by distant planets. It’s like watching the End of the World except no one is alarmed. Great planetary systems wheeling through the sky. Shining shapes – studded wheels and geometric designs – turning slowly in the infinite dark. (01/07/09)

    Brilliant. A dream that’s like an infection. A contagion. A parasite, perhaps?
