VENA CAVA (photomorph) & ON GIVING IT UP (mixed format dream poem) by Roswila


the cop keeps trying
as I resist, to draw blood from
my femoral artery
hell, he's not a medical professional
but it seems they're short on help

and the thousands
of us gathered in this theatre
all need to be tested
guess it doesn't matter I drew a cop
as I don't trust authority of any stripe

however it seems there's nothing for it but to
give it up and let him plumb my heart's path

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,
