the name of the dream

back in prison


was into the first day of my sentence


was in the dining area


there was a fixture against the wall that was furthest away from the food queue


the items were in see-through plastic packets a bit bigger than a credit card


the top of the packets was made of a sturdier material than the rest of the packet and they had a hole in them which was there to allow them to be attached to the fixture


the packets were hooked onto the fixture with metal s-shaped hooks


the item i wanted was at the top of the fixture and i assumed a person wanting to buy an item would be able to detach the packet and make sure it was what he wanted




a thin, tall inmate was standing next to the hard cardboard fixture, probably to make sure no one nicked anything, and was waiting for someone like me to do what i did which was unhook an item to look at it in detail


as soon as i had it at waist level he said "you're not allowed to take them off the board. put it back"


i tried to explain i only wanted to make sure it was what i wanted but this guy had the protection of the guards and used his position to assert himself authoritatively, something he could only do if he had the back-up


he caught the attention of one of the guards standing by the line of inmates standing in the food line and the guard began making his way towards us


i hadn't been in the place five minutes and already i was a trouble-maker


i knew there would be a harsh punishment and lost control of myself and grabbed the small finger of his hand and bent it back until he was wincing and said "if you get me in trouble i'll see you later"


the inmate said "now you've assaulted me as well"


in the next scene, i am in an outdoor training ground with mud everywhere and am being escorted towards a scene of activity


there were two lines of young men in dark-blue overalls who were competing with each other to complete various obstacles before their counterparts in the other line


they were being trained for armed-combat


there was impressive coordination in their movements and they sounded off in unison


i knew my fate and accepted it


i said to the escort-guard "there is a strong camaraderie between them


the last part of the dream was a short-clip montage with about five scenes of a trailer of a war film that ended as the title of the film was beginning to show


"the film was called "the desert rats"
