My House But Not My House.

April 26, 2010 § 1 Comment

Last night I dreamed I made a bomb that looked like a fire detector & worked like a mousetrap.  You’d put the dynamite inside it like a battery & then wind it around until it clicked, & once it clicked there was no going back.  In the early part of the dream I realized I’d set the bomb without considering I was in a large-collateral-damage area—the street, for instance—&  so ran around like crazy looking for a field.  One of the places I looked for a field was in a Space Museum, full of stars & shit, & there was no field.  After much desperate pleading with a school bus driver lady, I hitched a ride on her school bus to find a field.  I was bumping along on the school bus & still racing against the clock when I realized the dynamite had fallen out of the bomb in my frantic attempts to find it a field to go off in & I had to find the dynamite quick before it blew up, since I had decided it could work independently of the bomb itself, & would.  Suddenly, R. appeared, all Deus Ex Machina, & said he’d found my missing dynamite in the Space Museum, & had handed it over to the security guard behind the desk who, of course, having worked for years at the Space Museum, knew exactly what to do with it.

    This is very interesting. I like the way your dreaming self is so acutely sensitive to different meanings of the same word.

    What if instead of a musem of space (with stars) it was a museum of space (as in what is sculpted with materials used in architecture and/or words in a poem)
