Come to think of it—
true genius 
can only be rare 

as genuine 
vacuity. Yes, 
of tremendous 

ability and expertise, 
only a precious
few can speak, but 

who among 
the rest of us plebes 
doesn't sleep—

and while we sleep, 
command the supple 
and prodigious guile 

of the genuine sophist? 
Granted, no napper
gets described as 

particular—let alone 
meticulous, witty, 
or discerning—but 

none the less, 
plainly, all are 
quite industrious. 

In their dreams, in 
other words, everyone's 
an artist.
