Borges and He
Fell asleep to Borges (a lecture on "word-music and translation"), dreamed of, for some reason, Michael Jordan. He wasn't especially tall, but I'm pretty sure he was wearing a polo shirt (was it my polo shirt?) and his Hitler mustache. He kept challenging me to a game and telling me he was going to "punch me in the mouth." When I tried to chill him out by agreeing with him--"That'd be fine, if it were only metaphorically," I said, or "I don't mind, as long as it's only metaphorically"--he just sort of repeated "metaphorically" and nodded at me in an unconvincing way.
