Last night I dreamt (no kidding) that I had entered a contest to design surreal luggage for poets. I remember that the luggage I created was made of leather, included a special compartment to hold a manuscript, and another to hold a Philippine kris (dagger with a distinctive wavy blade). Every writer needs a dagger, right?
