LET'S PUT OUR HEADS TOGETHER (photo) & THE KEY (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


lazing behind their desks
in the office they try to talk her
into cooperating,
into to giving up the key she's hiding
as she claims no one has a right to it

that's just plain silly,
I think, because without that key
no one's able to get at the back log
of paper work that's theirs to do

it's also quite dumb
that they're sitting around being so
laid back about it,
so I plant myself squarely in front
of the woman and demand the key

"Give the key to me so I can have copies made,"
I say to her, clearly not brooking any disagreement

she gets very flustered and hands it over,
arguing it's not the way things should be done

I think, but don't bother to add as I walk off,
"It's actually a matter of priorities,

what matters more: how things should be done?
or, that what needs to be, does get done?"

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.
