Last night I remember waking up and feeling my heartbeat.
It felt like it was pounding in my chest.
Like an African drum shaking the earth with its rhythms.
I could feel it pulsating in my fingers.
I could feel it more than I have ever felt it before.
I took a deep breath.
So deep as to drown out the heartbeat.
Then I fell back into my dreaming state.
Pots and pans.
