7:06a I had a strange dream last night. I dreamt that Chris Brown invited me to participate in an art show at a large downtown library. I was to help hang the show, then free to enjoy it and the library. I don’t remember doing much actual hanging.
Next thing I remember, I wander into the “ocular room”, where all of the art is devoted to the geometric spiral. I am mesmerized by this room, and I pull out my notebook and plant myself on the floor for a while, to stay and study.
At some point, Chris Brown comes in and sees me there. He seems happy that I am fascinated, and in his usual playful attitude begins to mimic this dance with me, the one performed by the couple on the video “Close“.
Cause space is just a word made up by someone who’s afraid to get too… close. Close.
It is playful and intense at the same time, sensual but not at all sexual. His eyes are fun and penetrating too at times. We laugh, and he moves on.
The next thing I remember, I am bleeding menstrual blood, heavily. I am trying to stop it, but I can’t. I get up to find a restroom, and it’s like the dam breaks. I am leaving a trail of blood as I go, a fairly substantial one.
I go into a hallway and up a set of stairs. There is already a trail of blood here, much like the one I am leaving. I feel almost relieved that I am not the only one, though it feels weird to see so much blood at the same time.
I reach the bathroom door, push it open, and find two beautiful asian women, bloody and dead, sprawled into the bathroom. “Well I am not using this bathroom”, I think to myself, with only a hint of a danger feeling.
I return the way I came, seeing a lot of blood again along the way. I reach the bathroom on the next lower level. When I push the door open, there are several beautiful asian women gathered there, looking confused. They have been cut in different places – legs, arms, backs, buttocks. They are touching the gashes, trying to understand them, and to stop the bleeding. Now I sense danger.
