Dream 104
(4/9/2022)


I am lying
on a couch

in room
that I don’t
recognize

even though
I seem
fully dressed
I am partially
covered
with a blanket

a pillow
behind me
as if
I have been
sleeping

I look up
to see that
I'm in front
of a large
plate glass window

no curtains

no shades

this house
is right
on the sidewalk

right next
to the street

I feel
very
exposed

I see
two older
well-dressed
women

an older
well-dressed
man

approaching
of the sidewalk

my first
impulse
is to hide

but then
I think
that I am fully
clothed

that there
is nothing
wrong
with my lying
here

watching
them pass

the woman
in front
sees me

then quickly
looks away

she opens
the front
passenger side door
of a car parked
right in front
of this house

the other
woman

the man

walk around
to the street side
doors

they all
get into
the car

I think
that they must
be going
to church
