Wind blows, nothing happens.
Dog growls dangerously, still silently standing still.
Horn blaring, no response. Face appears, no recognition.
Words drift here, words drift away.
Blankness and dullness, absence is here now.
The witness. He sees.
As the witness, I sleepwalked.
Having no sense of time and space, I drifted through this peculiar reality.
I did not know “I am”. I was still asleep.
Neither could anyone else understand me.
