Upside-down mermaid Venus

Satyrus Marinus

I had a dream the other night that I was a mermaid. It was kind of a selkie story, it felt bitter sweet and kind of tragic. It was one of those dreams where everything feels so important when you are dreaming it but when you wake up the actual events seem so trivial, you can’t understand what makes it feel that way. Sometimes I’d rather just keep that feeling than think or write about it too much.
It’s like in Close Encounters of the Third Kind, “This MEANS something” but what the hell does it mean?
