You could install swarp from,
which is a command line tool, that moves your mouse cursor to the
coordinates you specified as command line options.

With two custom key bindings which will call swarp with the appropriate
coordinates for your screens in your rc.wmii.local or wmiirc (depending
which one you use) you could easily toggle focus in between screens.

As an example $MODKEY-Control-h could be used to switch to the left
screen whereas could be used $MODKEY-Control-l to switch to the right
