The Night After Listening To A Psychology Podcast About Alternate Strategies For Working With Dreams

 

Returning to the old home
now enjoyed
by a tribe of white rats,
123456I see that they are smiling.
Will I choose

to experientially explore
my feelings of annoyance,
confusion & upset
or will I interpret

these universal symbols
& archetypes
using the two specialized
dictionaries that I own

where Jung explains
the Collective Unconscious?
123456Or I could
just forget it.
