Dreamed 1990/9/26; 16-color digital comic drawn with a mouse, by Chris Wayan
I dreamed I was a telepathic rabbit on an alien world. My life there was so vivid and coherent that I think it's a real planet out there...
So be lonely, dig your burrow, sharpen your hunches...
- 22 years later... I'm still a wary bunny. I still value loneliness and disunity and confusion and other such... flaws. I do my art quietly at home, socializing very little; I can only tolerate those rare people whose auras are basically animal.
- Hearth can of course be read 'heart', too. "...the essence of a Hearth is that its feel is NEVER general."
- I read Yeats a lot in 1990; no wonder a poem of his appears in the dream. But it isn't Yeats! Despite the touch of reincarnation, it doesn't even sound like him--maybe William Carlos Williams, Amy Lowell, or Eliot flirting with haiku. Yet in the dream, I knew it was Yeats and recalled it word-for-word. I almost never have such firm dream-delusions. Here it is in plain text, this non-Yeats Yeats poem, neither telling a dream nor composed in a dream, but known in a dream:
|ODE TO HUMPTY DUMPTY
Time is our lives!
Past lives strung
Upon a puppet-thread.
A one-way bus ride!'
