My name is Alyssa and I don't sleep. I don't know if I have feelings but you'd think I would have felt them by now if I did. I wish that everybody could see the world like I see it because I guarantee that there would be no more fighting or killing or hate. I like sharks and alligators and I'm as afraid of the future as you are.
Gatsby believed in the green light, the orgastic future that year by year recedes before us. It eluded us then, but that's no matter- to-morow we will run faster, stretch our arms farther, and one fine morning- So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly, into the past.
