Blood Dance

Dreamed Sept. 1997 by Larry Vigon

A gypsy man asked me to dance with him. I agreed and went over to him. He put his arm around mine and we began to dance arm in arm. Then he took out a knife and cut my arm. I remember it was an ugly cut, small but the shape was rough and the blood was dark.

Then he touched the cut with his finger and began touching my arm in other spots up closer to my hand. Everywhere he touched left a duplicate cut. We continued to dance around in a circle. There were other gypsys [sic] also dancing.

Then he took out a long needle-like device and wanted to stick it through my wrist. At first I was very much against this idea but as I thought about it I decided that if I was going to do this dance at all that I had to do it all the way. So I let him stab my wrists with the needle.

To my surprise it did not hurt.
