understanding the bard. and bed. bed, too.

last night i dreamt of a man.

he placed his hands, open palms to my shoulders, equidistant on my back.

and they were clammy.

and this is how i knew he loved me.

and palm to palm is holy palmers' kiss.

and i awoke thinking my world would never be the same. sensuality and shakespeare elucidated by a single dream? ha, a mystical mind have i!

I had a dream (I don't remember the content) but it had a soundtrack.

It was Regina Spektor singing, "Crispy, crispy, Benjamin Franklin..."

I think your dream may have been better.

the best part about that passage in shakespeare is that the 14 lines that precede their fist kiss also make sonnet. pretty sweet right?

don't you hate when you wish your dream was reality?
