PASTICHE (photomorph) & ASKEW (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


despite her hard work,
the greeting card designs print askew,
oh, her pix are cool
but her words, oy, the words show up
in all the wrong places, as do the folds

why waste all that thought and effort, though,
maybe she should make a collage of them all

who'd buy the cards anyway, even if perfect
(as if perfect can ever really be obtained)

and the nature of collages leaves more room
for quirks and accidents (or so she'd like to think)

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,
