Sleep by Stephen M. James

We always had a crooked relationship; me and you and Sleep. I met Sleep before you did by two years I think. it’s funny because it was to the month nearly to the day before you came into this world and met Sleep for the first time yourself. Me and Sleep would greet each other joyously whenever we saw each other; when we happened to cross paths on the bus on a train in the park. But then you came along and Sleep drifted towards you albeit flittering fluttering faltering as Sleep often does. You rarely saw Sleep without me by your side. When I was there I’d find myself looking down at you, awake as you grappled with Sleep or writhed in Sleep’s embrace and when we were apart we’d both find ourselves reaching out and calling for each other although we were both really just calling out for Sleep.

Sleep Talks by Julie Davis The following are late night transcriptions of sleep talks I’ve had with my husband. These events occurred sometime in late 2013/early 2014 C.E. The device used to record and store these conversations was a Samsung Evergreen SGH-A667 which even in 2013 was outdated. Shorthand was used by me, the transcriber, because it was in the middle of the friggin night. The transcriptions were recovered on 4/9/2018. All parties involved have given their consent to the publishing of these transcriptions. Henceforth, I will be referred to as “Me” and my husband will be referred to as “Brad.” --------------------------------------Brad: U dont want any of those things. Me: What things? Brad: Bird innards Me: Bird innards? Brad: And scrambled eggs Me: What else? Brad: That’s it. --------------------------------------Me: Do u no ur asleep? Brad: They shouldn’t know. Me: Who? Brad: People Me: Who? Brad: Enemies Me: Do they know? Brad: No Sleepy Researcher by Helena Smolka **************
