Dreams 2022

Dream 10
(1/9/2022)


I am in
what appears
to be in large
hotel suite

I am lying
on a bed
at the far side
of the room
from the door

near the entry
a group of women
gather about
a table

picking up

talking about

the items
arranged
there

I stare
at the ceiling
listening
to their
chatter

one
walks across
the carpet
toward me

climbs
onto
the bed

straddles
me

leans
in
to give me
a kiss

asking

“aren’t you
glad
that you came?”

she’s young

early twenties
at best

pretty

short blonde
hair

breathing
heavily
as she kisses
my neck

I wonder
what
she wants
from me

all
of a sudden
a man’s voice
asks

“who
the hell
are you?”

the woman
doesn’t turn

just watches
me
with a smile

as I
look up
at a big dude
standing bedside
glaring
down

~

I am walking
the nighttime
streets
of a city

enjoying
the solitary
stroll

not really
concerned
about where
I am going

a man
approaches me
from in front

“don’t mess
with that guy!”

I look
at him
trying to figure
if I know
him

he grabs
my arm
for emphasis

“he’ll
fuck you
up!”
