ON ICE (photomorph) & THE CHARADE (free verse dream poem) by Roswila


that enemy of my erstwhile lover,
whom I've never cared
all that much for myself,
stands next to me naked;
just what's with all this sexual tension
between us
(and not only on his part)?
true it's a rather chilly sexuality
(to say the least, as I'm naked, too,
and famously cooler than anyone else);
and why
all this pretense of designing something
together, nigh on to sheaves of notes
and sketches scattered around
the nearly empty room
and in each
of our hands: whatever happened
to cutting to the chase?
or am I deluded again
and what appears to me to be
a charade is the only thing going down:
once again,
what I want won't be happening,
there's no hot sex
on the horizon,
only more
gelid teasing

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.

until next time, keep dreaming,
