Example text

The gods might strike me dead if they knew you were the object of this sad ecstasy. Sometimes I dress you as the well-dressed man I pass each morning on the street. I'm drawn to his brown suede hat. Or the doctor with soft hands who told me it's best to think of pain as a number between one and ten. You've been many things, all the same.  This is the dream swimmer's deep, that unbridled edge of anarchy, where everything's a pale blue-green and the air itself is drinkable. It's safe to speak here.
