Wheels on our heads

​We were caught in a world hidden from us. Sheltered. Our bodies had been altered. A wheel placed on the back of our head like a hard pillow. This was so they could wheel us away if we passed out. Sarah Michelle Gellar was there and telling us not to take off the wheel because we didn’t know what it granted us. Citizenship, and freedom. I took mine off and threw it in an arena. One like at a baseball game. I left and went to a party, a meeting. It seemed I was at school and I sat at the desk. The rectangle desks became more round. I looked behind me to hear the man talking. First I drank some sort of orange juice with oreo cookie chunks in it. He was saying that there was a whole world out there that we need to explore. Nobody listened but I looked at him and pointed to my left ear. I mouthed the words that I am listening. I hoped nobody understood my signing, and he seemed to look nervous. We bolted from the room. We went past Sarah and kept going through jungle leaves downhill towards the gate of freedom. I worried about my citizenship and if I should have shaved the back of my head in order to see the bolt holes. I kept running.

Goodwill and Sign Language

I was with hanging out with an ex, the one I have known for a long time and am still friends with. We were at the Goodwill I used to work at. It is also the place where I started to get to know him. He was on a mission to find the perfect missing thing from his life, which was a shield to put on the inside of his car to deter vagrants. We were talking and then I saw the tutor from my American Sign Language class. The tutor signed that he saw I was busy and would be around the store if I wanted to talk. The tutor walked out of the electronics department my ex and I were at in order to go to the linens department. The tutor kept looking over at me and I couldn’t decide who I wanted to talk more with. They were twins in many ways in my dream but had completely different personalities and offerings. The tutor would offer stability, comfort, and a home; my ex would offer confusion, and affection but also travel. I awoke before making any choice.
