Return to Slumber

Between the dark of night and the LIght oF day,
2:36 a.m.
awakEned suddenly.
a flash of lIght, a fleeting image, a fading memory.
trying to remember...
the only remnantS:

faint smell of smoke,
& the Brand of a rEd hot iron.
dry mouth Accompanied by thirst.
Up for waTer.
sUmmoned back to bed.
return to sLumber.
