I dreamed that a dingo took my baby.
Later that night, I dreamed of falling in love with a man convicted of
"the crime of silence" and who dedicated himself to semicolons. I
realized upon waking that my dream was inspired by the novel A HISTORY
OF LOVE by Nicole Krauss
: "Only after they charged him with the crime
of silence did Babel discover how many kinds of silences existed.
When he heard music he no longer listened to the notes, but the
silences in between. When he read a book he gave himself over
entirely to commas and semicolons, to the space after the period and
before the capital letter of the next sentence."
