lingering snow
grandfather’s silent
accordion

Senryu

 

(rarer than) hen’s teeth
whatever-this-is
between us

 

 

honest salesman—
the transparency
of a jellyfish

Senryu

 

Alzheimer’s—
a balloon on a stick
says get well soon

 

lost voice –
the doctor searches
with a camera

 

silver slipper moon—
I fail to fit
his image of me

 

#shithole
my neighbour builds
a higher fence

One Man’s Maple Moon: Scent Tanka by Martha Magenta

 

drawn to your scent
I linger in your caress
and wonder
will I disappear
if you stop dreaming me

Chinese Translation (Traditional)

 

受到你香味的吸引
我留連在你的愛撫之中
並想知道
假如你不再做夢了
我是否會消失

 

Chinese Translation (Simplified)

 

受到你香味的吸引
我留连在你的爱抚之中
并想知道
假如你不再做梦了
我是否会消失
