Lost Everything-Tanka

I liked this for it’s form and structure as a tanka. And because I had seen two people on the street who made me think, how sad at that time of day to already be on the way, small paper bag to lips, to oblivion. I like this tanka because it addresses a condition of humanity that needs our attention. Besides they beat me to it, I’ll now have more time to consider how to address this Edge of Humanity. Well done.

Self-worth gone today

Once wore pressed clothes and stood tall

All have walked away

Today holding drink in hand

Will he make another day?
