There is drumming out there most nights. It never awakens me; I hear the drums and incorporate them into my dream, like the mighty call of the muezzins. Even if in a dream I am in New York, the first cry of Allah Akhbar effaces the backdrop and carries whatever comes next to North Africa, and the dream goes on. Paul Bowles, 1972.
