DAWN IS BRIGHT DUSK IS DIM DOOM IS INBETWEEN
You are not asleep. You are a photograph of sleep. You
are in a movie of actors acting as if asleep. You are in a
movie of actors really sleeping. You may be dreaming of
sleep. You may be a person dreaming that he is a person
sleeping. You are in a state the locals have convinced you
is sleep. This is imitation sleep. Passing itself off as sleep.
It is not even a good wax figure of sleep. Certainly not the
twin of sleep, whose name you know. Even you yourself
do not believe you are asleep. Your sleep despises you,
like a fox. Your sleep fights you like a fighting partridge,
with beak and feet and wings. You die. This is sleep.
