i dreamed . . .

. . . I did a somersault and landed with both feet planted solidly on the back of an unclothed man kneeling on all fours. Then I broke into a garage and started planting tomato seedlings in the dark. The garage door creaked opened, and the lights of a police truck blinded me. I was caught red-handed.

i dreamed . . .

. . . everyone in Catahoula was getting ready for the vice presidential debate scheduled for live broadcast from Miss Gail's house. Street-sweepers had cleared the trash from the block party the night before, and flimsy white trash bags bulging with beer cans and beer bottles dotted St. Rita Highway. The pink brick church glittered. The elementary school sparkled. RE-ELECT JIMMY CARTER yard signs everywhere.

the moth collector

A boy found a moth and asked his father what it meant. His father said, "What do you mean, 'What does it mean?' Dreams don't mean anything."

i dreamed . . .

. . . I laid an orange-haired Little Red Riding Hood doll in the top drawer of the dishwasher and turned the dial to RINSE ONLY.

the hungry ghost

THE FIRST TIME I saw her I was meditating in my studio. She walked up to the window I was looking out through, and when she looked inside our eyes met.

miss kitty

At Double Trouble this afternoon Tim asked me about the stray kitty who's been visiting us lately, also known as Miss Kitty, also known as the cat we're definitely NOT adopting.

I said, "Andrew is allergic, so we can't keep her. What should I do?"

i dreamed . . .

. . . I rode from San Diego to Louisiana in the bed of a monster truck. "What is that music?" I asked the guy sitting beside me. The emotion of the music as we rounded the canyon highway's curves matched the rocky landscape so perfectly it was like the music and the landscape were one, and it was like I was one with the music. He didn't know who the composer was. He'd never heard the music before either.

Yes it was on a giant
