Lucid Dreams

Early on this morning,

Before I had a chance

to regain my revelation

in whimsical daydreams,

In my victory, 

I will revel in life

So that I might 

craft a self that

lives forever

that dances

through the

consciousness of future

strangers who want

to bring me back

to a waking life.

Hope's paper-thin smile tried to grow as she stared at her grandmother's reflection in the mirror. The mother-of-pearl grip sparkled in her grandmother's hand, bathed by the Chapel's cheap buzzing lights.

'There's a bullet for you, just in case.'

Hope had left the gun on the table.

A week earlier, drunk off self-pity, she had taken it out of its case and walked to the kitchen, where she stuck the barrel in her mouth and proceeded to take pictures of herself to send to Ray.

In a rare instance of good fortune, her phone ran out of battery before she could indulge her sense of pithy revenge. She woke up and pried open her tear-salted eyelashes then made sure to delete an…
