the name of the dream: snow-prison

 

second dream

 

in prison and i wanted to escape from it

 

the prison was in a clearing in a forest or at the edge of a forest

 

outside there was snow on the trees and the snow was thick on the ground

 

there was no chance of trying to bribe the guards to help me escape, it would have to be done in a roundabout way

 

it was a cunning plan, first, i had to bribe the right people to get me a fish and chips meal

 

the people who i approached were big-stomached men who liked food themselves and could sympathise with someone who wanted their favourite food over and above everything else and would be less likely to think of it as being part of an escape plan

 

i had convinced the two men involved that fish and chips were something i missed more than anything else in the world and i would pay handsomely if i could only have my favourite meal of fish and chips, something which was never served as a meal in the prison

 

it would have to be a hot meal because that was one of the things which couldn't be brought into the place without other people becoming aware of it and someone would have said something which in turn would have turned the spotlight of suspicion onto the guards

 

arranging the meal had cost me a small fortune

 

because the food couldn't be brought into the buildings i would have to eat the food outside

 

i was outside when the first shafts of the headlights of the car penetrated the forest

 

what others thought was someone giving me a meal was a colleague taking me to freedom

 

first dream

 

the name of the dream: mice in a store

 

a neighbour from six years ago knew i was going into town and asked me to pick up a lightweight raincoat that had been altered

 

got to the three-storey store where he had bought the trousers and went up the escalator to the first floor

 

as i was going to the collection counter a couple of children aged five or six were making excited sounds about something

 

as i got closer i could see what they were excited about

 

there was a mouse with a dark fur under the bottom shelf of a wall display

 

the mouse was straight out of a child’s film; there was a mouse with a dark fur under the bottom shelf of a wall display

 

its whiskers were twitching and its eyes suggested an intelligent awareness

 

i would show the children that mice were friendly

 

i produced a nugget of food about the size of a pea and bent down and held it out near enough for the mouse to get without having to come out of the cover of the shelf

 

the mouse took the morsel and delighted the children when it began tucking into it

 

within a second or two of dream-time, another mouse appeared but i didn't have anything to give it

 

so i held out my finger thinking it would come close and let me stroke it

 

it came close alright, close enough to bite into my finger, thinking it was a food-offering no doubt

 

the scene changed and i was walking out of the store with the raincoat and there were two uniformed police officers, a woman and a man, checking the items people were taking out of the store

 

i made a joke about something and the dream ended with the sight of the two smiling police officers
