Rotten Father Soup

Like most of my dreams, most of it is fuzzy, except for one clear scene - in which the father cooked soup for his family. As the soup came to a boil, he immersed his face in the bubbling liquid. Time seemed to pass rapidly inside the pot - as his face quickly bloated and then rotted off, slipping into the soup and mixing with the meat already inside. His nose was the only piece that remained recognizable, floating at the top. He withdrew his head, grinning skull shining wet in the dim kitchen light, and ladled out three bowls for each of his family, but none for himself. The family was unphased. The youngest - a boy - received the bowl with the nose and chewed on it happily, like it was a rare treat.
