Dreams 2022

Dream 103
(4/9/2022)


I turn on
the TV
expecting to see
the usual
news program

but instead
of the two women
who usually
appear on camera

there’s an older
man
with a British
accent

I check
the channel

I check
the time

they should
be on

~

I am alone
in a waiting room
of some kind

even though
there are chairs

couches

I am standing
by one
of the three doors

it begins
to open

I step
back a bit

a young woman
in a light
terry cloth robe
comes in

her long
dark hair
wet

dripping

“the water
pressure
is so low today
that it’s taking us
forever
to get ready”

I look past
her
to see another
young
wet woman

standing
at a counter

wearing
only
red panties

“you like
seeing
me naked

don’t you?”

I think
that she’s talking
to me

but she’s
looking down
at a slight
angle

I shift a bit
to look around
the woman
in the robe

then I see
a toddler
in diapers
standing unsurely
in front
of the woman
in panties

realizing
that she doesn’t
see me
at all
