Last Night I Dreamed I Was Two-Faced

Last night I dreamed I was a reluctant lieutenant  in the Russian Army in Moscow in WW2. I was a two sided personality, a toady that always seemed to comply with every order to give me latitude to steal the art works that were being “saved” from cities under siege. Nobody really knew what I

DREAM

I have a large section of Dreams going to the Archives, but there are several floaters not pinned to the page yet. Like this one.     I am seated at a lengthy concert in a building older (but not the) than the concert hall, but with more leg room than Pantages’s or the Walker.

I Dreamed I Met Justin Trudeau

Last night I dreamed I met Prime Minister Justin Trudeau in an almost empty Winnipeg Hudson’s Bay building. I explained a problem about needing new shoes for my feet, one real, one fake. I wanted real shoes, perhaps not as fancy as his, but leather white-collar shoes, black, brown, no matter. Not sandals, not sneakers,

DREAM October 30

Last night I dreamed a dream. Nick Lowe had agreed to come to Winnipeg to guest with a local band (maybe help with the production of their debut recording). Lowe was impressed by the demo I sent him. He flew from London, spending the night in Toronto before flying to Winnipeg. He arrived at the

Sponsorship (Dream)

Last night I dreamed that Great West Life donated $132,000 to start the Envoi Literary Foundation capital endowment campaign, and provided $40,000 for operations in 2015, and $22,000 in 2016. “In dreams begin responsibilities” – Delmore Schwartz. Keep pace with the Envoi Poetry Festival here. V

November Goal (Dream)

No longer playing goal, I have the puck on my stick, a glimpse of an opening, I bury the puck in the back of the net. A pump of my fist, at home in a Jets uniform, I score my second goal this season.

Early Morning Wine Store Blues (Dream)

A morning person, I leave the house before daylight. Two pariah dogs follow me as I hurry to get wine for Thanksgiving Dinner before the crows make shopping too difficult. I stop first at the new shop on the North side of Portage Avenue. The dogs , having delivered me safely, continue on their way.
