Dreams 2022

Dream 72
(3/6/2022)


I am making
myself
something
to eat

chopping
vegetables
at the kitchen
counter

“what
are you going
to have
with that?”

Mom asks
from behind
me

without
turning
I tell her
chicken

“that’s
a pretty big
bird
to be done
on time”

now I look
and see
a carcass
much larger
than a turkey

maybe
two feet
high

it’s cooking
on a huge
hot plate
of some
sort

the inside
is basically
hollow
so I reach
in
to test
the temperature

the meat
seems rather
hot

top
and bottom

so I think
that I
may be
OK

I look up
to see Mom
and Donna
shaking
their heads
