I wake suddenly from a dream and I am lost. Blearily, I watch a vortex form above me. What is this place?
A beast screams its strident tone repeatedly. Its red eyes glare at me. I smack at the monster until it quiets but its disgruntled presence fills the room.
My body tells me that I am bound. Am I sandwiched between the petals of a flower? Or is this luncheon meat that surrounds me?
I realize that these are the sheets that I sleep within. The vortex is the ceiling fan as it does its lazy dance. The beast is the clock by my side. Its angry red eyes the numbers that equal time.
Darkness reigns supreme. Why do you still exist Daylight Savings Time?
