I remember the geography of Nottingham so well.
What every street meant to me……
I must have loved them to know them so well.
In my dream tonight, I was looking down upon them, as if looking in an atlas and I felt oddly distant from it all.
That is the strangest thing of all.

I am a teacher who dreams he is a Lord. There is nothing sillier than that. The eccentric oldest son who was meant to inherit. But no longer has any claim on his past.

And further into the nightmare, there was a pit. And there was a voice from the pit.
And it wrote itself onto mens faces. It sought an escape into the world of men.
It was a beast, I am sure. The thing inside is all that we must not let out.
A broken clock or a broken mirror will let it out

Chains I keep thinking of something that was chaind

PAGE SIXTY-SIX

I have seen the opposite of a star. A darkness rather than a light on the world
void.
There is a world that lives here, terribly close to disaster. It feels most like a vision, a prophecy. Like something out of astrology, that the placing of these starts is stars is important.

Starrs

Rocks black rocks
Firy ball (or/on) a black ball astrology

There was many of them

They looked like they had worm over there faces
