CHECKS & BALANCES (photo) & TOUCHING (dreamku series) by Roswila


handsome Joey’s touch persuades me
where his words had just raised doubt

I love exploring
his large muscular body
as we have hot sex

he also knows his
goals, going for them with neither force
nor flicker of hesitation

unlike this other,
this male boss who’s clearly
not worthy of trust
nor is he even upfront about
his most immediate aims

sexual coercion
heavily laces his
orders that I
balance the checks right now
and on first try each time

I acknowledge my
short-comings as a worker
-- a prior boss had
said the same of me -- but ignore
his sexual innuendos

I’m deeply saddened where’s Joey and his forthright touch

[a two-liner, two dreamku, three tanka, and a monoku on a dream of 4-16-12. What little recall I have from last night is extremely vague. This one is a 5 month old dreamku not posted here yet; not sure why I decided to post it today. Maybe it’s the sadness and that lack of honest connection (which is as much about feeling disconnected from myself as from anyone else). The “Joey” in the dream was the character on the old T.V. sitcom “Friends;” a somewhat dim bulb but sexy and essentially very sweet and caring. Photo “Checks & Balances” 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).
