THE MASH UP (photo) & NEVER MIND (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


aw! give me a break
I fought to separate from
each of you long ago
but here you both are in a dream
and mashed up in one person

guess my dreaming mind
didn't trust that I'd notice all
your shared qualities,
that I'd not otherwise see
the trouble they signal

as if being so
charmingly bossed around
and smilingly dissed
wouldn't have given me a clue,
wouldn't have turned me right off

sigh...never mind...even as my back goes up
I find myself scurrying to meet your demands

PLEASE NOTE: in most browsers you can click on the above image for a larger version. Also, the photo accompanying a post is not necessarily meant to illustrate it, but to reflect some small, even slant aspect of the verse, similar to Japanese haiga (illustrated haiku).

There are many other sorts of posts on this blog. I indicate which are about or influenced by dreams. Some non dream focused posts are book reviews, "regular" poems (some by other writers, as the above is), scifaiku, writing exercises, Tarot haiku, photos, haiga, and so on. However, most of those are in much older posts. There's a listing by month going back to early 2006, at the end of the sidebar.

until next time, keep dreaming,
