Recently, I had a dream that I was carrying an impossibly tiny whale made of stars in my arms. He was separated from his pod and I was trying to return him to the sea. Out of nowhere an enormous monster came to take him away. I was running on the sand trying to get him into the water, when another figure rose from the black waves, something like Poseidon, to fight the monster off while I pushed my way into the current. I held him in the shallow waves, coaxing him to sing, hoping his whalesong would summon his family, when my alarm woke me in that moment. It bothered me so much that my dream was unresolved, so this piece is my way of ensuring that I got the little guy back to his mama safely.
