Lucid dreams of silent screams;
Trapped in mind’s eye
I soak in a hot tub of
bubbling chicken soup.

Emerging sticky yellow
naked into the night
Bike riding down the
Dark wet dirt lane.
So much is new, but
Porn has always been free.

NOTE:  I was home all the time, two children at home, working from home. Overwhelmed, feeling rundown. Pornhub was in the news the day before saying that it was free to go premium. I woke up with some sort of sleep paralysis and was screaming internally to try to wake up. Once I woke up, I wrote down everything I could recall about this very lucid dream experience.
