Dreams 2022

Dream 28
(1/25/2022)


I am
walking along
a city street

wearing
a jacket
on a cool
gray day

at an intersection
I see a tall
older woman
strolling
on the other
side
of the crossing
avenue

she stops
as she sees
me

turns

and begins
heading back
the other
direction

I seem
to remember
that we were
supposed
to be walking
together

I run
across
the empty
pavement
to join her

she’s older
than I first
thought

but realize
that she is
probably
my age

“I thought
we’d go
this way”

she says

we walk
for a while
then turn
a corner
into a neighborhood

“this
is my house”

she tells
me

we go up
a sidewalk
and enter
the front
door

inside
I tell her
that I haven’t
sex
in a long
time

“what
have you been
doing?”

she asks

I shrug
my shoulders

pantomime
jacking off

“show me”

she says

I drop
my pants

my shorts

and show
her

she gives me
a rather
sad look

kneels
down
in front me

takes me
into her
mouth

and I know
that I won’t
last
for long
