Andes Mint #7: Tanka (the last time)

Tanka* (the last time)

I’m crazy about
you, he ran back up four flights
to whisper. His eyes,
burning. His coat, flying. His
decision, already made.


*A tanka is a Japanese poem consisting of five lines, the first and third of which have five syllables and the others seven. Tankas, like the blues, often deal with intensely personal subject matter.
