THE NIGHT DOWNLOADS (photo) & ALPHABET SOUP (dream based prose poem) by Roswila


the computer up-date CDs arrive just in time
for the finalizing of the agreement

the two sides to the contract gather
at a large conference table,
though I'm still a bit uncertain
about this deal ... well, not so much
the deal itself (all does seem in order)
but rather about the mobster-like men
we'll be committing to work with

as I'm nursing my doubt, the handsome
but vaguely untrustworthy boss
of the mobster-like bunch
demands the signing stamp
which now cannot be located

someone points out that the stamp is in
the stack of yet to be loaded up-dates,
on the CD labeled "H"

I think how fabulous that the up-grade
comes in so many sections, then one
can simply not load any CD with
a change on it one does not want

but, sigh, what else might be on a CD
with one undesirable change, and how
might it fit in with and complete
the others that sit on the table,
each labeled with a letter but out of order,
like an alphabet soup awaiting
use to make sense of it

maybe there's no way around accepting
the risks involved in committing to change

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.
