This piece was prompted by a strange dream.

Before fully waking
this morning,
I dreamt of spearing rats and mice
swarming in a mountain of hay…

A competition among friends,
I was pleased
my spears were hitting their marks.

Resembling live bait on a hook,
the speared were
gnashing their teeth
and growling
even as they were dying.


My interpretation: 

The “mountain of hay” is my finances.  The "rats and mice" are demons hell bent on destroying my finances or otherwise making them worthless.

I am pleased because I am adept at spearing and ridding the rats and mice from the hay (my finances).  They are gnashing their teeth and growling because they do not wish to go.
