Whew! Here it is ... 27 Haiku, plus one in the title ...


                    BLINK 1

                    geen sleep occluded
                    side ways dream the caption reads
                    how so the waking?

                    BLINK 2

                    some shadowed figure
                    translucent wings not hiding
                    technology's force

                    BLINK 3

                    chalice of ANA
                    outlining negative space
                    with unopened eye

                    BLINK 4

                    this flesh-tone floating
                    within a void of doubt
                    what arousal's here?

                    BLINK 5

                    lying assertion
                    disrupts the linear world:
                    this five is not four!

                    BLINK 6

                    mirrored, inverted
                    what universe she visits
                    in this dusky dream?

                    BLINK 7

                    sea creature or pod
                    or nightmarish denizen
                    from special effects?

                    BLINK 8

                    "We come from the land
                    of the ice and snow ... midnight sun
                    where the hot springs flow"

                    BLINK 9

                    iconic yellow
                    vision of wings made metal
                    frozen into gold

                    BLINK 10

                    in bleached bone action
                    as scientist or priestess
                    reaching for unknowns

                    BLINK 11

                    beyond the footlights
                    braids like seaweed, arising
                    Ophelia's ghost

                    BLINK 12

                    this highway stretches
                    off to the far horizons...
                    just watch for the drain!

                    BLINK 13

                    kinetic vista
                    through this keyhole now spying
                    what that curve, that angle?

                    BLINK 14

                    Oh, naughty, naughty...
                    she's discovered us looking!
                    I think we'll be spanked!

                    BLINK 15

                    "On your marks, get set ..."
                    we await the results of
                    the two meter dash

                    BLINK 16

                    girl at the table
                    returning lingering looks...
                    could there be a chance?

                    BLINK 17

                    Pooka and Deiter
                    standing ready on the set
                    ANA calls "ACTION!"

                    BLINK 18

                    behold the spirit
                    arise from the faerie's sleep
                    to dance in the night

                    BLINK 19

                    BA-BA-LUUUU! showtime
                    those disembodied egg drums
                    keep the freaky beat

                    BLINK 20

                    porcelain goddess
                    object of a distant lust
                    many hands would feel

                    BLINK 21

                    the passion erupts
                    neglecting the camera
                    so often turned off

                    BLINK 22

                    alien hitman
                    stares out of the screen, I flinch
                    what have I done NOW?

                    BLINK 23

                    down the rabbit-hole
                    or worm-holes to other planes ...
                    who wants tomato?

                    BLINK 24

                    received transmission
                    the Bear World delegation
                    awaits your answer

                    BLINK 25

                    no more boring meals ...
                    make your own pasta at home
                    with Spaghetti-Head!

                    BLINK 26

                    by the time the cops
                    got to the crime scene, Ken had
                    made his getaway

                    BLINK 27

                    manifesting joy
                    in doggie wiggles, runs and jumps
                    frenetic, careless
