Luminant Palliative loses her braid
Luminant had not gotten any sleep that night, what with the ants crawling over her leg in a straight line and the cherubs eating their cereal and the little holes in her skin that light came out of. No sleep, no dreams, no restful repose. She walked up and down the block and waited for her internal light to dim and it wasn't until eight o'clock in the morning that she thought to pull the cord. She pulled so hard it came off. But the light went out immediately and she was finally able to go to bed and fall into a deep, intense, sweet sleep.
