You're in a dream. Sepia. There's a tree, its leaves are flying toward the sky. Your face contorts, probably wondering if you're upside down. You see that the tree's roots are parallel to your feet. So, no. You're not upside down. So why are the leaves "falling" in the opposite direction? This is a dream, you remind yourself. To your left is a deer with four eyes. Dangling from its antlers are keys shaped like hands. You pluck one and recognize it as the key to your house. You throw it away. You don't need it. Home is an illusion.
