Think about when you've woken, but have just entered a new dream versus when you've actually woken but are pretty sure you might be dreaming

That's where I'm at. Though one can never be too certain. I'm also at the middle of a field of grass. Again. I think. But awake. I think.

I've never not woken with a dry mouth. You haven't either, don't like to yourself. It's the only way to tell.

Though what sort of life am I leading that it seems every time I wake up I *must* look around, take stock, figure out what happened prior.

Suitcase, lock pick set, matches, notebook - shirt, wingtips etc indicate a night out. Clean jacket, all things considered and forgotten.

The sun hurts my blinking eyes more when it's overcast. I consider lighting a match and swallowing it to get the stale taste out of my mouth

Must be the park a couple blocks from home. Must have been a moment last night, halfway through the park, "Here's good enough to lie down."

Time to dust off and stalk out. I wonder if this is good enough to become a personal mantra.

By the time I get home I'm ready to crash. I toss the briefcase under my bed, don't bother to undress, flop on the bed, the door rings.

I'd consider not getting up, but the cat jumps on my stomach. I throw my hat after it. I yell "coming" to the nothing listening.

I finally reach the intercom with an agitated "WAT?"- "It's Tony" it comes back. "Sorry, Tony. What is it?" - "we've got a job?" fuck.

Typical quick calculations: Do I smell too much, do I need a shirt change, am I going to vomit if I don't drink something soon.

I almost catch Tony giving me a funny look with his already funny bird face when I finally make it out the door. Almost.

Tony's got one of those cars that may as well be boats that everyone's grandfather had.

Seats that you sink into that smell of everything that's ever been on and near them.

A car engine that revs and hums with the cadence of a train, lulling you to sleep.
