Q4: The Grimm Side of Imaginary Dreams

Q4: The Grimm Side of Imaginary Dreams


There’s rolling fog, poison ivy,
and there’s a woman in black
with a nose like a bat and wings
like rhubarb leaves, and there’s

these seven little men wearing
billy goat chins who juggle
seven red apples between them.
And my first grade teacher is

dressed up like a preacher,
although his wolf tail is poking
out his butt-hole seam, and
‘though I think I’m in this dream,

I’m nowhere to be seen … so
maybe it’s your dream I’m in.

  1. I remember I was asked to review a retelling of a Grimm tale once. I thought the first thing I’d better do was to read the original.
    I was totally blown away – it was so good. I didn’t say anything but really, it was pointless trying to retell it.
