I had a very vivid dream.

It goes like this:
My car was gone. I thought, in that lazy dream way, that it must have been towed. I got the anxiety you get in dreams where you know you probably won’t find it, but you need to try.

I pulled out my phone, but as the screen lit up, it shut off suddenly. Around me, a cry rose up. We were in a big field, in a middle school in Burbank I visited once, people I knew vaguely, and a friend by my side.

She is smarter than me, she knows something is wrong, and starts pulling me inside one of the buildings.

More chaos- we look up, and there are things in the side. At first I think they are planes falling, but then I realize they are satellites. They’re close, we are all running now.

Then, all of a sudden, it’s raining, pouring down rain. The satellites have stopped falling. My friend takes me by the hand. The only thing to do, we think fuzzily, is to walk home. I grab a bucket, and hold it over my head.

The dream ends there.

I like to think, though, that maybe it kept raining, for ten days, and ten nights. And when it was done, we started to send our satellites back out to space. We’ll turn our phones back on. But we’ll all remember that first morning, when the rain cleared, and our heads, for once, were clear too. Everything in technicolor.

The crab was oddly defensive about his little bit of rock; he kept shouting “This island is mine! This island is mine!”, and snapping his claws like two little shotguns.

a true story

ashlynanstee:

When I was young, we would go often to feed the ducks at a pond in the park near our house. It wasn’t the best neighbourhood, so the park was scraggly and special. Sometimes, if we were lucky, there would be fat, cranky canada geese that would honk at us and occasionally nip at our ankles if we weren’t fast enough with the bird seed.

Our family cars were always getting stolen. I learned later in life that it was a bit absurd exactly how many times over the years we lost our cars (though somehow, they always found a way back to us). They were always old beaters of cars, strong boxy metal frames with really weak keyholes. One of the cars could be opened with any set of keys, another had a sliding door that would come right off its track, and we’d have to climb through the front like a monkey.

imageOne morning, we woke up and the car was gone. My parents dialed the police and the cops dutifully took down all the information. They explained that there were thousands of cars that were missing at every given time, so that unfortunately the best way to find it was to call your friends, keep your eyes open, and just look.

image

We walked the next morning to feed the ducks at the park, and the car was waiting for us, almost expectantly. All the doors were open. image

The air was damp, in the way that only Vancouver mornings can be. The birdseed strewn on the back seat had sprouted, little shoots reaching for the roof.
