Pull down the shades and come. Let me rest a while. Enfold me in your immortal coil, and dust me over with dreams of glory. Whisper to me of what could have been.

This post was made in response to the Trifecta Writing Challenge weekend Trifextra prompt, in which the editors gave us this assignment:

Remember the apostrophe? defines apostrophe as, “A figure of speech in which some absent or nonexistent person or thing is addressed as if present and capable of understanding.”  That same site provides some excellent examples of apostrophes in classical literature. Check them out and then have a crack at it yourself.  Give us your best 33-word example of an apostrophe.
