“Life Sentence” Tanka 2112


(December 31, 2018)

black-robed judge leers down

holding a tree-stump gavel

“…hereby sentence you!…”

I didn’t wake up just then:

“to life in this coming year!”*

*(May be a sad case of hubris overcoming humility – again. At least I got clean skivvie shorts on and my toenails are clipped.)
