The children of a delivery arrive nestled into place in packing peanut arms. I swim through those arms to scoop them up. Two books, glossy and resolute between my fingers. Daylight glinting from the bindings' edges. I plummet backward into pillows and clouds and spread their wings, displaying colorful underbellies of comic drawn boxes. My lips jump back behind my teeth. My imagination stretches an arm into the page and pulls me through to the other side. A world of storm cloud mysteries, eyelash fluttering demise, and tides of hard liquor rising and falling against protagonistic shores. A siren flares from the periphery like a seagull near-missing my ear. "TOMMY, did you clean your room!"
