Do zombies sleep?
Do they dream?

I sleep.
I dream of zombies.

I wake up.
I don't sleep.

I lay still.
Foggy and fearful.

I remember the Perseid meteor shower.
Cocoon myself in a banket.

I lay on the back steps.
Fear forgotten.

I watch entranced.
Stars streak by in a rain of fire.

I hope for more.
Just one more blaze across the predawn sky.

I sleep.
Drift back to more pleasant dreams.

Too bright in Pitt to see the show. Wish I had been in Bell.

I believe that Bell would have been meteorite viewing heaven-especially now that the ants are under control.
