My Dream by Clyde Tressler

by Clyde on 2, February 2013

In my dream I was a rabbit, one of those light-brown twitchy ones with wide-open eyes that make it look like it’s always scared.

Actually, I had good reason to be scared because there was a fox chasing me and, since I wasn’t succeeding in my effort to outrun it, I stopped and remained completely frozen in the field of tall brown grass.

I could feel my heart racing. Rabbits have very fast heartbeats you know, but these contractions seemed to have passed into some region of vibratory frequency that I thought probably sounded like a dog whistle. I considered the auditory powers of the fox ear, but just then it’s muzzle thrust through the grass and my tender neck was suddenly in its jaws.

I felt blood pulsing out and everything turned red. Everywhere was just a great endless field of red and I started to feel as if I were rising up out of my rabbit body and the field of red seemed to recede into the distance.

When I was far enough away I saw that the red was a heart on a birthday card and saw that it was you handing me the card.

Then you smiled and I could see that your teeth were 32 birthday candles and they were all lit.

But they were burning much too quickly and, as the wax melted, I could see you aging before my eyes, and soon all that was left of the candles were smoldering stubs and blackened wicks like singed nerves.

I searched for your withered face but it had been obscured by a field of tall brown grass.
