Right as my body started to dissolve, a voice said my name-“Kat!"
Shocked back into my bed- heart thumping. But why? Is there only one moment- only room for one syllable? Did my ear brush past your mouth on it’s way out?

And would I like to say "hi" to anyone?
When your sleeping ear passes by my lips, what should I say..
