To a Crisp

.
.              One's buttocks alas,
               may be fried, if one lives in 
               hubris and pride, or
               one's buttocks may be burnt if
               certain lessons are not lurnt.



Thought I'd try practicing a Tanka.

No turning back

A Mothers Meditation

I taught her better.
I didn’t want this for her
She’s followed my tracks
Look at her, life is ruined
She knows not what she’s done


	The Daughters Disposition

	Wow, what did I do?
	I can’t bear the pain she flaunts
	Her disappointment…
	Stings… like a swift kick inside
	What on earth was I thinking?


A Teen Dad’s Train of Thought

Did I? I didn’t!
It wouldn’t have felt as good…
She took the pill right?
What if, she was with other guys?
What do I tell my parents?

"Studies and surveys of young teen males show they are worried the pleasure 
experienced during intercourse will diminish with the use of a condom."

You cannot feel it
Eyes on what you want the most

A decision that was made

Monk's Tribute (Tanka)

Thelonious Monk
piano keyboard prophet
harmonizing scales

Melody from flat to sharp
rhythm soothing to the soul


Comments:  Thelonious Sphere Monk (1917-1982) is recognized as one of the 
most influential figures in the history of Jazz. He was one of the architects of 
bebop and his impact as a composer and pianist has had a profound influence 
on every genre of music. Thelonious Monk Institutes of Jazz are located at the 
following locations: Washington Office: 5225 Wisconsin Avenue NW, Suite 605, 
Washington, DC and Los Angeles Office: University of Southern California, 3443 
Watt Way, Lower Level, Los Angeles, CA. The Thelonious Monk Institute of Jazz, a 
nonprofit education organization, was founded in 1986 by the Monk family along 
with the late Maria Fisher, an opera singer and lifelong devotee of music.

Buring a matter

mouth to mouth
a matter was fired on
when I walked
street was burning as sand
when my home was smoking

Forty Lashes

Under my trouser
I never wear underwear
but the Judge
penalised me forty lashes
publically in a public place.

Never barked

A dog always barks him
when he walks on a street
in the late evenings
one day he strips him
he never barked again


Details | Tanka | |

Never thought

dirty hands a treatment
served with honourable manners
a gentleman never thought
someone is serving poison
the bees were flying on honey
