Dream Journal #10: My Way to Work

the school is a city
like Venice or New Orleans
populated by students
milling in the streets
I wander to work
dragging my bag
and a lap desk
along the ground
stopping frequently
to adjust straps
I see you
behind me
down the street
looking in shop windows
laughing
I dance a half-step
happy
you are still here
then enter an alleyway
past hand-painted signs
on  grimy bar windows
to greet my class
