A Conversation in Dreaming

"Are you always this charming?"

"Are you always this skeptical?"

"Only of you."

"And what have I done to earn this privilege?"

"You always leave."

"I'm here now."

"So you say. This might not even be real. I could be dreaming."

"I could pinch you."

"That's a very stereotypical way to talk about dreams."

"If so, you're wasting our reality."

"What else should I do with a happiness so temporary? So fleeting and inconstant? Celebrate it?"

"Enjoy it."

"But I could wake up any moment. You could be gone. Maybe not even a memory."

"Would it matter to you?"

"Do you want it to?"


"Then...stay asleep."
