Dream Journal, Vol. 9

My girlfriend and I are relaxing in our apartment when the FBI enter. My girlfriend is half-French and half-Arabic, and they begin questioning her, unkindly, as to where she was when and why and just where she learned to make explosives. She nervously pets our dog's snout, dealing with the awkward situation by retracting into herself and quietly asking the dog trivial questions -- "Why are they here? I do not know why; I would give you more food if they would let me get up."  The FBI take me aside and hint that it would be in my best interest if I just left and didn't look back; that I would be comped for the things in the apartment, which they're sure they'll have to dissassemble once they manage to catch my girlfriend in a lie; that it is only a matter of time.

I am livid (how dare they! Just because her two primary nationalities are -- ) until the explosion rocks the apartment, and I run to the living room, and there's FBI agent flecked all over everything, and the smoking remains of a Monopoly box, and I realize that I've been wrong, so wrong about everything, so wrong that once the dream resolves itself by sending backup units to pepper me with ammunition, the dream itself offers me an alternate ending, in which a good-ole-boy sargeant comes out and claps me on the back, saying, "No, sir, I don't think y'all'd've seen that one comin' from a mile off," and in which everyone knows I am innocent, and I don't need to prove my disassociation; my honest bewilderment; my pang of betrayal.

I wake up depressed and wishing keenly for that dream about the monsters who liked cereal.
