Sunglasses at Night

In my darkest dream, I'm wearing sunglasses at night while I drive... a phantom flying down freeways During my journey I spot Matthew McConaughey in his glistening Lincoln chariot - a smug smile vanishing from his famous face as I speed by on my breathless trek I will not be surpassed or surprised or stifled by any mega rich superstar or anyone else in motion... my eyes unblinking as I race with frightening intensity on this endless stretch of highway I sense that people in power are impressed with my arrogance and every dewy-eyed starlet in Hollywood falls apart at the sight of me masked dramatically in my striking shades - my music blasting my foot on the accelerator my destination a well kept secret I have an image now to uphold so splendid so masterful perfectly illuminated by the glow of a brilliant desert moon lighting my way toward a golden promised land

SIREN

It blares me awake from a deep sound sleep a high-pitched aberrant sound that disturbs and mystifies a sonic knife cutting through the air I pause not remembering who I am where I am how I got here in this dark unfamiliar room I struggle to remember what mayhem could await me - something evil, foreboding, something awful cloaked in the merciless sunlight of morning
