I’ve sifted through possibilities. Every day, they become less probable. If wishes were dragons, I’ve nurtured leather-hard eggs. One by one, the eggs rot. My desperation grows. I fuss. I turn. I inspect.

Mythical creatures will play in my back yard. They will be freakish creatures of sweet mercy, if only wishes come true.

Fascinating blend of whimsy, longing, and sort of nightmarish imagery. Loved it.

A bit sad…despration grows and wishes often don’t come true!
