ARCTIC ROSE (photo) & A SLIPPERY SLOPE (two dream tanka) by Roswila
A SLIPPERY SLOPE
why are her breasts bared
and how can she keep them covered
while eating pizza,
she’s really craving a slice
but her hands and arms are full
and that know-it-all
guy from the doctor’s office
why’s he lounging
and spouting: you can have what
you want, just watch out for the ice
