The fourteenth dream: Singers on risers. It's a small stage with heavy purple curtains. Three risers are placed in a semi-circle on the orange hardwood floor. The singers are young women in yellow summer dresses, their faces raised into the stage lights, and their identical mouths forming the notes, one row after another like hammers in a piano, chord rising from chord, passing waves into the space over the auditorium. They are holding hymnals with comic books stuck inside. They are singing from the comic books, Bat Man, Tom and Jerry, and Modern Romance. The music is beautiful.
