Dream of a Wolf.

Extracts from this document...


Dream of a Wolf I yawn, and lay my head back onto my pillow, my eyelids are heavy as lead, and shut involuntarily. I struggle to keep them open, but again they close. It's happened again, I'm there. At the back of that ordinary classroom, full of ordinary children, with ordinary notes on the blackboard I can see myself, no, not again. I think I see myself.
