a daily tanka — 4 June

seedless mandarin
how DELICIOUS is this? 
my mouth floods, fingers 
sticky segments ... like my life

kids laughing down the alley

After Malaysian-Australian poet Zhi Cham’s poem MANGOES AHEAD, among many fresh offerings at Cordite Poetry Review.

Today’s music: here’s something from 1977 – David Bowie with Low (so many faves like Sound & Vision)(YouTubers)

Sorry tanka fans, there’ll be no poem on 5 June. I’m off at South Coast Writers Festival – enjoying nourishing offerings and reading a few poems from Shorely, my first chapbook.
