Dreams 2022

Dream 113
(4/30/2022)


I am standing
in a waiting room
of some sort

other guys
are also
standing

some
sitting

most
are drinking
coffee

I
am drinking
coffee

I am watching
a TV
that hangs
on the wall

the program
seems to be
sports
related

I see
scores crawl by
at the bottom
of the screen

but am unable
to read
the team names

“what’s
going on here?”

a guy
entering
the room
asks me

he appears
to be
an employee

I tell him
that we’re just
drinking
coffee

watching
TV

waiting

“we don’t
have a TV

or
a coffee
maker”

he says

I point
to the screen
on the wall

the table
below
with the coffee
maker

coffee
cups

“when
did they put
those there?”

I shrug
as he passes
by me

then opens
the door
to a restroom

I watch
him
go in

then turn
back
to the TV
