DEEP DARK: Dedication
“For the tiny aliens in our midst, watching and waiting to take over. I was on your side all along.”
The dedication works from several angles:
“watching and waiting to take over.”
Few adults interact with children in a way that reflects their position as the future decision-makers.
“I was on your side all along”
Following the ominous suggestion of a “take over”, I like the way this last makes an appeal for mercy on my behalf. Our children will write the histories of our life. This also is a play on my own tendency to relate to the world as a younger person.
