EMBELLISHED (photomorph) & LIFE AS A SOAP OPERA, or The Big Lie (dream writing) by Roswila

(or: The Big Lie)

it's immediately clear to me
that the mother of his baby's
not that prostitute he must have paid
to say so, but this patient of his
(Dr. Big Miracle) whose life
he claims to have saved

as a major character on this soap
the writers will have to at some point
explain why he lied, but it will be a huge
challenge to write it so that the fans
suspend disbelief in whatever excuse
they cook up, the lie's a whopper
for this wildly popular character,
and not defensible in any way that I
can imagine, and not only that, but "who's
the real mommy/daddy's" such a cliché!
(and I'm quite surprised my fellow fans
haven't tumbled to his lie yet)

I suppose they could always
write him off (send him on a mission
of mercy to a foreign country,
or even kill him with some disease
du jour -- that one would generate
a host of Emmy worthy performances
by fellow actors) but they will have
to deal with it, one way or another,
for no matter how inconvenient
the truth always outs

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.
