The Fine Free! Sign’s Dream

written by Mathias Svalina

I dream I have a comma in my center. I now read Fine, Free! Exhausted by a life of unceasing exclamation, of constant excited sincerity, it it’s a relief to be exasperated, to be sarcastic. It feels so good to not have to merely mean what I say. I let my corners curl a bit. I let a bit of air bubble up beneath me. I see a crack in the sky, a black chunk in the blue sky, lit only by the tiny dots of distant stars.
