Subj: Dream 20030220, 1:00 AM: Prisoner in the Sex Toy Factory
Dream 20030220, 1:00 AM:
I’m a captive in some sort of totalitarian regime. It seems like war is taking place, but we’re not in any battle area, more of a support facility. The uniforms remind me somewhat of the Nazis; the place where we’re being kept is not very prison-like, it’s much more like a dairy barn. I remember walking along dirt-floored hallways with bits of straw, marks from mud on the white walls.
I sneak down a hallway; I think I’m trying to escape. I duck into a room to hide, and there are rows of bins full of small items; I stand next to one of the rows and mutter to myself as I’m looking at the various items, pretending that I’m working on pulling an order. The bins are wooden, and tip forward so that they are easy to reach into; they remind me of an old-fashioned store. There is another man here in a uniform, and he is pulling an order; he is apparently having trouble reading what it says. He sounds out a word that I can’t remember now in German, and I explain that it means “shipped.” He thanks me and goes back to his work. The bins are full of small items that seem to be sex toys. Some are toothbrushes with clear handles, there are several bins of tiny dildos in different shapes and colors; most of them are about the size of one of my fingers.
Further on in my escape plan, I’m beside a swimming pool. There are probably half a dozen people here; they are oddly dressed, not in uniforms, but almost in allegory costumes. They start carrying on an elaborate fight; they are using weapons like a pointed umbrella, a long javelin type spear, and a trident. All of it looks very choreographed and dance-like; it’s definitely not a bloody-minded battle. One of the people, a man with flowing shoulder-length hair, jumps into the pool and sinks straight down to stand on the bottom; another reaches in and pokes at him with the pointy umbrella. Someone is screaming about how they’re trying to kill him, but he comes back up out of the water, apparently unhurt.
