Per Change, To Dream

I keep having long dreams of the Ozarks, strange tales of places I know. My mother's small town of Salem, Arkansas becomes Peaceton, my father's Viola, Violation. I'm stuck between the two, but their dream-inspired names don't entirely reflect their natures.

This awakened side of the dreams, I could play around with the names of other towns and townships in my area of the Ozarks, and maybe come up with some narrative tale to tell . . .

Just a thought:

How would Nabokov re-name these places?

I don't know. But I might re-title Lolita as Loliterachure.
