Catherine Fisher

“Even gods dream.

I dream of water, of how it falls, the plop of the great hot drops on the desert, the hollow pits they make in the sand; how the parched land drinks them instantly.

I am a god; my dreams should come true. But then, water is different, water is she, and there's no control over her.

I think I have lines on my body, and great scorched places and pustules that burn like volcanos. Or sores. Or deserts.

I puzzle myself. Am I single or double? Light or light's shadow?

And the tunnel leads up to the world and I climb and scuttle through it, and come to where you live.

And one of the problems of divinity is that people expect something huge and powerful.

And an instant result.”
