NIGHTMARES OF MINE
"...surely do I not dream."
" For the most wild, yet most homely narrative which I am about to pen, I neither expect nor solicit belief. Mad indeed would I be to expect it, in a case where my very senses reject their own evidence. Yet, mad I am not - and very surely do I not dream"
- Edgar Allan Poe
The Black Cat
