The Purple Rock Dream

I never dream.  Well, of course I do. But I never remember them. My giant bouncy house of a brain does the following..  Takes forever to go to sleep. Hello headphones and weighted blanket…  Once I’m asleep, I sleep like I’m dead. It’s stone cold blackness.  Then in the morning I wake up like a […]

You’re Somebody’s Mother the Poem.
