NaPoMo,April 21

The "tall ship sailor" and tanka poet M.Kei has such an amazing wealth of work, that I find myself at a loss about which one to choose for today's post. Yet choose I must and this is my selection.

the slattern houses sag
on a mean street in a small town,
floral sheets for curtains
cinder blocks for steps
and the fetid smell of despair


And because I wasn't able to resist...this one,too.

things that come
 with the fog:
horseshoe crabs,
tall ships
and wandering hearts
