HOOKED (photomorph) & THE QUESTIONS CONTINUE... (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


of all the questions
she's had recently about her dreams
this one takes the cake
(though to be honest, a cake she's
dreamed about in other ways before)

why, oh why, oh why-oh is she seeking not only
an awful man's attention but his approval

and then as if just yearning for his A-OK stamp
weren't enough, she debases herself further

here, she says, let me undo this double brassiere
I'm wearing, just watch how flexible I still am

and reaching behind her back she unhooks hook
after hook, ignoring the one gripping her heart

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,
