A thought and its strange horn: semicolon and ampersand dreaming
The semicolon dreams. It isn’t one, but two. Brother and sister. Mother and child. Egg and sperm. Zygotic. X and Y. Chromosomal. A Bicameron over the corpus callosum of the page. A greater and lesser brain, brontosaural. A thought and its strange horn. The beginning and end of sleep. A dream of dreaming and of waking. A hand and its other becoming breath and its shadows, a one eye open, a book.
The ampersand dreams. Mother & child, the primordial &, a mother’s arms around her child, the Moebius umbilical, the inside out, the turning a portrait of itself, the between one thing and another, the and other connected, the hand and its other, the breath and its shadow, the shadow's curl, the ampersand.
