no, there’s no romance
between us, both he and I
softly assert --
his denial, though, wanders

so embarrassed that

this large old woman,
he phumphers his response
youthful face carefully bland
[two tanka on a dream of 8-5-12. No dream recall from last night, so I’m posting this nearly month-old dreamku. It’s one of those dreams that “decoded” for me a puzzling interaction I’d had the previous day. It also reflects a decades old memory. Certain attitudes do not change. Photo “Facing Up” by Roswila]
