SUBROSA (photo) & THE SILENT CONTRACT (dreamku series) by Roswila


her long-time lover’s
leaving on a business trip
the first in many months
he pulls the files for the I.D.
he’ll be assuming

oh, no it’s "Ted"!
that means he’s contracted
to make a killing –
and just how does he sell
anyone on his false personas?

it seems other folk
must be no more concerned with
honesty than he
the important thing being
to always make the sale

the silent contract:
I’ll buy whatever you’re selling
if you’ll buy my stuff

[three tanka and a dreamku on a dream of 8-16-12. And just in case the clues to this aren’t obvious within the dreamku series, I “buy into” this “contract” myself. E.g., I almost named it “The Social Contract.” Photo “Subrosa” by Roswila]

BRIEF INTRODUCTION TO DREAMKU (& PHOTOS): The dream-based poems posted on this blog -- dreamku, tanka, two-liners, and monoku -- are offered in the spirit of collaboration. I have done my part. Now it’s your turn to jump in and see what comes up for you. I.e., there is no right or wrong way to understand or interpret any of these dream offerings. Even my own understandings of them change over time. And it gives me joy when a reader sees something in any of them that I have not.

For more in-depth exploration:

-- detailed three-part post about dreamku: "A DREAMKU PRIMER: Writing Haiku-Like Poems About Your Night Dreams": PART ONE: Introduction & Writing Dreamku as Dream Work; PART TWO: Elements of the Haiku Form Used in Dreamku; and PART THREE: How to Write Dreamku (the second and third parts have some overlap).
