an unread tanka — 22 May

the poetry books
sulky on my table
still unread           still
their golden lines         impatient
my lover calls from our bedroom

And for music today, some jazz from Japanese pianist Ryo Fukui. Here’s his album A Letter from Slowboat (YouTubers here). Slowboat was the name of the jazz club Fukui ran in Sapporo.
