Dreams 2022

Dream 20
(1/17/2022)


I am in
the top bunk
of a bunkbed

in a darkened
corner
of a large
otherwise bright
room

it looks
like a
restaurant

every table
full
of diners

I know
that they’re
eating breakfast

getting ready
for the day

sitting
in my roost
I am wrapped
in a blanket

too warm
really
but I don’t
want the others
to see
that I am
not clothed

a woman
comes toward
me

asks me
if I want
to eat

if I want
to go
with them

I tell
her
that I can’t

everyone
in the room
stares
at me
