Coin With the Same Face on Both Sides


                                Once again the coin has been tossed
                                to choose between just dirt and dross
                                Insults from ridge to ridge
                                on how to build a bridge
                                in town without river to cross

    I think this is beautiful in a very natural and understated way. Near sublime. Favorite

    Great one Ruben O! Sounds like the same kind of local politics as we got down here in LA...mine was in Cajun English dialect which is pretty hard to decipher (no plurals, everything singular,etc) Congratulations my friend!

    hahaha, just rereading this one and it really struck me as funny on the last line this time. gosh, I just noticed I have been to this one so many times. I wonder if there is one of yours I have not ever seen?? (I'm not looking at any of my tanka entries . I love seeing them blind!!) Otherwise,I'd go see THAT one.
