Dreaming in Delta Waves
by Veronica Suarez

Letting go into sleep is not easy. 
It’s like catching a wave and letting it 
crash into your brain, letting it churn and 
swirl you into the amniotic fluid of your 
mother’s stomach: till you are nestled 
like a babe, asleep in the womb of your 
childhood, with your mother’s spheric darkness 
enveloping your dreams into the 
stillness of being alive, but asleep.
