Dreams 2022

Dream 51
(2/15/2022)


I am driving
into
a parking lot

on a beautiful
sunny day

I have
my windows
down

my music
up

I see
a couple
of young dudes
walking near
me

they look
over

then at
each other

start laughing

put their
fists in the
air

bang
their heads
in time
to my tunes

I begin
closing
the windows

~

I am sitting
at a desk
in a mostly
empty
office

someone
knocks
on the door

I say
come
in

it’s
the two guys
from the parking
lot

they each
hold
a long
gray cylinder

“we brought
some donations”

one says

“where
do you want
them?”

without waiting
for a reply
they walk
around me

behind
me

laying
their loads
among a huge
collection
of boxes

bags

and like
items

I thank
them
as they leave

wondering
where
they got
those cylinders

since
their arms
were empty
before
