Dreamt I was asleep in bed. Then half awake. Run my fingers through my hair. I feel something thicker. A knot in my hair? A tangle? I grasp it. Pull sharp and quick. Pluck. I feel it loosen and free from deep roots. A long black fibrous stem. With burst of white roots at the base. A plant growing from my scalp now next to me on the white sheets of the bed.
