Juliet was at work, glassy-eyed, in an oneiric state in front of the keyboard, thinking about her romeo and enjoying various fantasy scenes in her mind, including one of her love bringing her a lapis colored ceramic bowl of steaming kasha as she lay in bed on a rainy morning, followed by a glimpse of him returning the box of cereal to the cupboard in analphabetic order per her organizational scheme, prompting a sudden awakening from her reverie.
