What would Freud say about
Dreaming of ghosts in my bathroom
Sometimes I dream of two bath tubs and sinks
mirrors upon mirrors.
These dreams take place
In the loos of the past
One spirit was a girl, another a demon
The most recent was my dead grandmother who
Was scared by me
While I sat on the porcelain throne in
The downstairs bathroom of the Tompkins Avenue house
In the dream I felt insulted
I was the one who should have been scared
Her pallid face, translucent figure
Retreating as if I were the devel.
The psychology of dreams and analysis
Would they help me understand
This subconscious exploration of lavoratories and spirits in the night?
I wake feeling tense, unable to forget
And wonder what these dreams meant.
