A Room of My Own: War Veteran Tanka

midnight moon ...
a war veteran
stabbing and slashing
his mind-demons
onto the canvas

Note: This poem is a sequel  poem to the following tanka, which was first published in Atlas Poetica, 19, 2014:

in the shade
of a weeping willow
a war veteran
takes on shifting shadows
in hand-to-hand combat
