i walked outside the hardware store and looked into the sky. a flag was there, floating, perfectly smooth. it was very high. i pointed. someone else looked, too. the flag appeared to be being flown like a kite. but that, of course, was impossible. too high up. then another flag appeared. then another. then a formation of flags. more and more formations at different levels of sky. some were flags of nations, real flags. some were flags that don't exist outside of my mind. i began to feel frightened when the flags overhead formed corporate constellations. a yellow ford symbol floated over. an advertisement for a household product. some flashy american flags woven into an otherwise innocuous rainbow affair. the sky began to fill with flags until all i wanted to do was go back inside and not remember the sky anymore.

i think that may have been a nightmare.
