A "skerry" is "a rugged, insulated sea-rock or stretch of rocks, covered by the sea at high water or in stormy weather; a reef."

The world of Dream is enormous and scattered with countless skerries, each one a setting for a thousand dreams. Morpheus is alerted that "One of the skerries is dying ..." His companion crow, Matthew, asks, "So what are you going to do about it, Boss?"

The Sandman responds, "Do about it? The Skerries are distant islets in the shoals of Dream. They live, they die. They come and go. Why should I do anything about it?"
