EVENING'S BACKUP (photo) & BEAST WITH TWO BACKS (non-dream free verse poem) by Roswila


not having what one wants?
well, just the flipside
of having it

another type of beast with two backs:
backed up to itself

but no matter how you stack 'em
one passionate animal

each side grasping fervently,
not toward the other,
but out into the world

[non-dream free verse poem written 7-24-16. *The beast with two backs is a euphemistic metaphor for two persons engaged in sexual intercourse facing each other and clinging as if a single creature, with their backs to the outside. Photo "Evening's Backup" (4-24-14 008v4a) by Roswila]

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,
