Sometimes he dreams of blood:

Buffy’s, Lilah’s, Connor’s...Dru’s when he turned her.

Three pulsed down his throat. One merely spattered on his hands.

Sometimes he sees them burning:

Darla and Dru in the warehouse. Spike in the desert.

Sometimes he dreams of water:

Falling, rising. Glass and hunger.

Here he sees Holland Manners, an elevator:

“Home Office, Angel?” he says.

This time he leaps up, heroic.

For in dreams, even a vampire can fly.

“Oh Dru, I can see the stars...”

But, even in dreams, a vampire cannot achieve escape velocity.

He falls--an icarus--into Acathla’s hungry mouth.
