An Exercise in Snakes

A dream.

Part of the exercise, said Alexia, is this: a room full of snakes of many sizes, many huge and different colors. We are to lay among them, but see that they will not hurt us. “But you don’t have to lay among them if you don’t want to,” she said. “Lay with your rosary there, instead.” I saw there was a rosary giving out a blue light from its beads. All but one of the snakes would not approach it. The one who did had bitten the crucifix.

There are snakes on the floor between us and the way out. A woman in danger is by my side, and I must help her. The authorities are coming to take her to a terrible prison. We must cut off the heads of the snakes.
