THE BAIT (photomorph) & WHAT'S MISSING (dream writing) by Roswila


say what!? just how
am I to understand
this dream scene:

a bipedal bunny, human-size and dressed
in a shocking pink vest with a dangling
watch fob, seems to believe its an overseer
here, clutching a clipboard and taking notes
as it closely observes all that goes on

and that background music (if it can even
be called music) is the theme of the T.V.
show "Shark Tank," mixed with the ominous
thumping beats from the movie "Jaws"

yeah, I can wring all sorts of associations
from each of these images (for starters,
"I'm late, I'm late, for a very important date..."
or how some would say we're all nothing
but shark bait, or even torture a warning from
the juxtaposition of a self-important bunny
and sharks: Don't Trust Appearances)
but what stands out sharply enough
to fully wake me and prompt
a drafting of this piece?

maybe what's most conveyed is what's
missing: laughter at yet more of life's
absurd contradictions

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.
