Reset: (Drama Rehearsal)

in a barn
not alone
couples from high school
near the football field
wearing camouflage and drinking cans of beer

in a cafeteria of my peers
seated with familiars
ex girlfriend
old friend’s ex girlfriend
in line
for a turn at the huge keyboard
glowing red
huge screen
i didn’t do very well at it
a peer was showing me how to change the color of the keys
blue
green
water started spewing from the device toward electrical outlets
i ran out to the hall
looking for the principal’s office
looking to notify the administration

after school that day
talking with friends
walking home past the pond
with the camera following me from the other side of it
as we leave
the camera carefully pans into the water
initiating an old horror picture soundtrack
as it captures a man waiting in a dress shirt and leather mask
unconcerned about any lack of oxygen
in a hollywood creature sort of fashion

in bed that night
kissing a girl from high school
she had a comforting tongue

in the living room
sitting on the couch between my mother
and my sister’s friend from high school
i pulled out one of my molars by hand

in a garage
we sat in a circle
after we all sang the first song
we all knew different songs

former classroom
former teacher
young female friend
in black leggings

in the pool at the beach
not alone
i met four young girls
i gave them drugs
deactivated
one girl thought she heard voices
i assured her of their actual existence
we kissed
i later looked all over the beach for them
for her
when we found each other we hugged
kissed

in a train yard
red fat marker
yellow
orange fine tip
not alone

christmas in the mountains
mom had company in the den
money to put toward the car as a gift
on the way to the store
not alone
the engine blew up
i decided not to leave

in my backyard
up high in a tree
i used to climb
before it got cut down
afraid of heights
looking down
trying to get down
carefully stepping down
to each branch
each branch feeling like i’m too heavy for it
it’s spring time
i finally made it safely to the ground
i wasn’t alone
i suggested to the others it was okay to come down

back and forth between the neighbors’ house and mine
dinner with members of a band
home cooked
1,000 dollars worth

in the next dream
i couldn’t remember
couldn’t quite hang on


a week or so of consecutive dreams
documented by computer

    You know the vib of late has been all about dreams. I notice the thread often seems to be picked up. Interesting that you could actually document yours. Unless I awake fully and write them down I can’t always remember the details as you do. Yours all seem to be of being surrounded by people. Again interesting read.

  • i’ve been remembering more dreams than usual, lately. i had to focus rather hard to keep the details of the dream alive before i could write it down. which was really a lot like any other kind of writing, for me.
