SKETCHY CONNECTION (photomorph) & BIG QUESTIONS (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


now, how's this question
for a big one? (you should
pardon the pun)
what's Governor Christie
doing in this dumb dream?

nah, not really dumb
I just don't want to deal with
it's many levels,
each one I peel away -- note the
food metaphor -- reveals another

also note that he's
a demotion in a way, only
a presidential
candidate wannabe, not even
a party's chosen candidate

normally he'd be
a president or a former one,
and we have something
very much in common in our
struggles with body size

in other flirting-
with-a-president dreams
only our attraction
obviously connected us
so why this big (pun!) change

and why do I have
to trot beside his car, like
a secret agent ...
yet, for all these questions (and more)
it's pleasant to be flirted with

by this larger than life man to whom I'm both
connected by struggle and separated by position

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.
