FOOTPRINTS OF THE FERAL (photomorph) & THAT FERAL LOOK (dream-based monologue) by Roswila


“yeah,” I repeat, “for someone who’s been ‘on
report’ more than anyone, ever, it’s surprising
…no, stunning…that you’ve not been ‘invited’
to move out or at the very least been called
unceremoniously on the carpet numerous times
…oh, you say, you don’t understand why
anyone would report you to begin with? well,
that ignorance points to a probable explanation
for all those reports (if not for their lack of impact
on management): you don’t know diddly squat
about human interactions … not that I’m setting
myself up as someone who knows all that much
myself, but I do know there are times to speak up,
to take a firm, unyielding, even aggressive stand,
and times to shut up, cut one’s losses, and run
like hell … just as now, that look on your face
is decidedly feral: I’m outta here!”

[monologue based on a dream of 12-3-19. I’ll leave it unexplained. Suffice it to say, in the actual dream I was the person “on report.” And in order to express what I needed to from this dream, I changed points of view in the above writing, but not the dream content or trajectory.

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 or contrasting 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.
