'MARES DE MAL Work Division



Poet X of PDX: "Working 11- and 12-hour shifts instead of our usual nine for the past four weeks probably contributed to the fact that I had three work-related nightmares over the weekend which were unpleasant enough to wake me. "When I have dreams that are set at work, I always wish someone could invent a time clock to measure them so we could get paid for them. Who's dreaming now? "The third dream wasn't really a nightmare. I had to fill out a bill for a shipment to Osama bin Laden. Since no address was given, I had to do what I always do in that situation and send it back for more information. Even in my dream, I realized this was just silly and that I should wake up and start over. Which I did."
