FOSSIL IN PINK (photomorph) & THE TEMP (dream narrative) by Roswila


she's really needed a job and now finally has one:
"baby sitting" for a bright pink, paisley print,
1950's convertible at the filming of a T.V. commercial;
what an easy job, too, she thinks, as a car has no mind
of its own so can't help but do what it's told,
meaning she won't be required to do more
than stand by and watch the filming

what she doesn't know: her temporary agency's also
hired a guy in a black leather jacket to steal the pink
convertible away; this will prove to the film studio exec's
that hiring baby sitters is an on-going necessity;
and, therefore, despite her best and frantic efforts
the black leather guy takes off with the pink baby, leaving
her mortified, her first job in months and she's messed up

what she also doesn't know: the studio exec's are delighted
with the film they got of the thievery, "like Keystone Cops"
they say, and pat themselves on their backs for having set up
the Temporary Agency; an unscripted, unrehearsed chase
always has such energy and, of course, reality to it

and the last and most important unknown: there's no way
ever to succeed in doing the work as one understands it
for it's always a multi-level set up; the best one can do
is attempt the work as one sees it, and enjoy the ensuing chase

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.
