by Allan Kolski Horwitz
This collection of 47 parables and flash fictions can be described as follows: The dream-like; the waking fantasy; the reverie; the parable that instructs; the story that informs; the story that provokes the underbelly of consciousness; the story that becomes a slip of the mind; the story that registers alarm; the story that registers ease; the dream that illuminates the waking eye; the dream that gives voice to the silenced tongue; the dream that brings shivers; the dream that brings orgasm; the parable that offers a path out of the dark confusion of crisis; the dream that is light as a laugh; the dream that saves the dreamer.
