Sing to Summon Courage
Dreamed 2019/4/21 by Wayan
I walk up to the library to pick up some books I ordered. By the door is a table where a teenage girl and her mom are selling cupcakes for a charity.
The daughter's in a tiny gold miniskirt so short her panties show. Selling her thighs for charity! Absurd, but... sexy, too. I feel shy, embarrassed and fourteen again.
While Mom just glares, glares...
NOTES IN THE MORNING
I feel wicked. Met a teenage girl cupcake
selling at a charity stand by
our library in a pale gold skirt so short
if you even glance at that caramel thigh
her panties wink. I blink. Look away?
Flirt. Date. She's fun. Her little brother's cool.
But Dad's a rich grouch. Wrong about me. I
like her, not wealth; don't need to flaunt
like him--those gleaming suits in the garage,
crisp-tailored cars in the closet. Custom-
But I flirt madly with her and she with me
till Daddy has to take us seriously;
summons us to his chosen grilling spot:
Maxim's, across a manicured square of

is the elevator shaft, too; you

on a ledge. Ahead's a slender bridge
over a deep stone gulf. The railing low--
skimpy as a skirt--that architect again!
means a killing drop. To give myself
courage, I start to sing. Belt out
a dream-song I long ago wrote:
"Migrate through Fire" always helps.
my dreams have prompted me to sing
this line when old fear rears:
"Follow the dream, migrate through fire."
Song-heartened, I seek my girl beyond
- Heiress: saw a Laurel & Hardy film, Way Out West. They deliver a goldmine-deed to the wrong girl at first, though they get it right at last--after the fiendish tickling scene and the levitating mule.
- Climb, exertion, worry but not terror: almost certainly a bout of tachycardia during REM. I often get this before dawn. Inherited.
- Sing "Migrate through Fire" in dreams for courage: I can't recall doing this even once. Yet in the dream I recalled doing it for years. Guess it's a suggestion...
- ACTION: sing Migrate to summon courage--and see what I do then!
