"Creature Seen in a Dream From Which I Mercifully Woke Up"
Sharks have figure prominently in the author's nightmares for years, but the oneiric emergence of this multi-finned number probably provoked more wonder than fear. Some sort of aspidistra or octopus appears to be displayed in the background, though whether this was part of the dream or a preexisting doodle is not known. Details not included in this reproduction: a man posing in front of a pyramid, and this fragment: "The sails appearing in the bay like knives."
