MEASURING THE SUNSET (photomorph) & VISIT FROM AN EX-LOVER (free verse dream poem) by Roswila
VISIT FROM A EX-LOVER
not him, again! and why, please tell me why
I'm welcoming him? and feeling glad to do so?
have I missed being alternately charmed
and criticized that much?
and what he's offering to do doesn't seem
to be anything I've wanted and ever will
I haven't worn jeans or slacks in decades,
so don't need to know my in-seam length
come to that, I can guess it anyway as I still have
long legs, at least that hasn't changed with age
and maybe that's just the dream's point: walk,
maybe even run away from that new man and my
yearning for him, on these long, if unsteady legs,
as if old nick were about to embrace me

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.
