BUOYANT (photo) & THE NEW ASSIGNMENT (dream prose poem) by Roswila


there's a new boss lady in this
not fondly recalled office
she worked in decades ago,
though maybe, she thinks, a new
broom really does sweep clean;
however, she's quickly
disabused of that thought
when the boss lady assigns
her work that requires she use
very rusty skills and one she'd
never learned well to begin with,
that miserable Excel computer
program; then a distraction enters
the office space, setting all the staff
abuzz: a well-known and successful
singer/actor, who she instantly sees
would make a perfect closing act
in the showcase for which she's been
charged with producing the programs
and ads; so she takes it upon herself
to approach the handsome singer, hoping
he'll join the production, and feeling both
shy and bold, she asks for just a couple
minutes of his time; at first he hesitates,
clearly thinking she's just another rabid fan;
but then he relents, turning his heavily
lashed eyes on her like dark spotlights,
a new light gleaming there as his full
attention to her kicks in; and a different
hope floats sharply through her, almost
more like a warning: does the show really
need another one of these acts?

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), 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.
