High Concept Sonnet

—Would you rather be, she asked,
Asleep when everyone else
Was wide awake, or awake

When everyone was sleeping?
—What kind of question is that?
—Just tell me. —Awake, I guess.

—I’m going to write a novel
Set in a dystopic world
Possessed by dreaming sickness,

And I need to figure out
Whether my protagonist
Should be the first one to dream

Or the last. —You could do both.
—Boring! Everyone is both.
