Dreams 2022

Dream 105
(4/9/2022)


I am watching
a baseball game
on TV

the batter
hits a foul
over the stands
on the third base
side

the camera
follows
the ball
to a sidewalk
behind
the stands

it comes down
into a crowd
standing there

a young
fat woman
catches
the ball

I see
that it’s Irene
from Midwest
Publishing

~

I am standing
in the Midwest
offices

talking
to Sheri
and Irene

we seem
to have been
talking
for awhile

suddenly
I say
to Irene

you caught
a foul ball!

she smiles

reaches
down
to grab
something

then slams
the ball
onto the top
of the file cabinet
where
we’re standing

she hands
it to me

beaming

I see
that it has
many
autographs
