A woman who has broken with a male partner tries to interpret a bizarre, ribald dream about the emotional costs of a possible reconciliation.

 EXCERPT

 

In my dream I am looking at this note. This note he has scrawled to me. After months of no contact, he has finally managed to scrawl a note. A whole sentence. I'm surprised -- surprised, and pleased.

I am standing next to my mailbox at the office, the office I no longer go to, and I am reading this one-sentence note that he has stuck in there for me to find. It is an invitation. I open it.

This is the sentence:

"IF I CAN BRING MY COCK TO DINNER, WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER AGAIN."

(A double take.)

I read it again, uncomprehending.

"IF I CAN BRING MY COCK TO DINNER, WE MIGHT BE ABLE TO WORK TOGETHER AGAIN."

Is this a good sign...or a very bad one?
