  • Today my name opened its eyes over a woody ceiling. It is my dad's one. The light entered the room in spirals. My body, the body of my name, decided to rise and shine when the radio got accidentally turned on by the cat who was smiling while walking on the soft touches of the radio remote control. Then Haydn came in from the radio, the cat said, and the day started off.
