NIGHT CLIMB (photo) & THAT SMARTS (dreamku series) by Roswila
a poster proof sheet
appears suddenly in the air,
dozens of versions
of the same basic design
for a new smart phone campaign:
a woman’s huge fingers,
just the well-manicured tips at
an artsy angle,
hang over the city-scape
as if it were a keyboard
the theme implied by each poster:
the entire city at your fingertips
like a miasma:
King Kong clinging to the top
of the Empire State building
trailing this old movie image the thought:
loss of proportion can be dangerous
[two tanka, a two-liner, another tanka, and a closing two-liner on a dream of 3-14-13. Photo “Night Climb” by Roswila]
