Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing, XL

first starry night
in the Year of the Dragon
for now
writing moon tanka becomes
my home in the Maple Land

Atlas Poetica, 15, July 2013

Notes: The tanka above is the last one in my 40-tanka sequence about diasporic experiences. The opening tanka is as follows:

a new immigrant
in the land of Snow White
I practice
A,B,C... by talking
to the bathroom mirror

You can read the whole sequence here.
