I have a recurring dream. In it, my teeth fall out and I spit them out. I shouldn’t have. I need them to express, to convince, to be in control. But they pulled them out, or did I spit them out?
I don’t know, I don’t remember.
Maybe it’s what we all do to survive. We need to judge, to oppress, to take over, to have our teeth fall out, to have them pulled out. As they watch me, my teeth realign and my judgments flow and, soon, shift and I dream.
I don’t know. I don’t remember.
