THE FOG ROLLS ON (photo) & BABES (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


beware of the "Babes" in this life

that nickname may imply innocence
and softness, and that sugar wouldn't melt
in their mouths, but just look at them:

infant, grown woman, and Babes
of all ages and sexes in between, even
the handsome man walking with you
and looking over your shoulder as you
review this line up of Babes: they're all
teasers, sweet and loving come hithers
roll off their tongues and shine
in their eyes and smiles, but rejection
and betrayal is what they hand out
once you step up

no wonder they now stand in this police
line up, waiting for you to identify
the biggest perpetrator
from among this backlog
of shameless Babes

fuggedaboudit! they're all equally guilty,
toss the whole damn lot of them
into the can and throw
away the key

better to wind up walking alone through this world
than ever again to hook up with a Babe

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.
