It was the time between night and day. That time when I want to crawl back into bed to hide from light. But as the dawn, I will brighten with each minute.
My headlights lead. In the distance a trio of small bobbing lights and then a small fluid one coming closer. The biker and I pass each other. The joggers bob along and disappear behind me. The night dream jolts into focus. Moving headlamps coming at me in a dark limestone room. The light hides the faces. Here I am back in the mushroom mines.
