Dear John Letter Tanka

The 7th tanka in the sequence, Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing


the Dear John letter
morphs into a plane
this cold night
my shadow and I
ride the tandem bike home


Note: Based on the principles of progression and association employed in Japanese court poetry (for more information, see 'To the Lighthouse: Principles of Progression and Association in Tanka Sequences, ') , Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing is first English language tanka sequence about diasporic experiences. In the sequence, I adopt an intersectional approach to exploring a wide range of issues related to immigration, English learning, racialized identity, racism, job seeking, colonization, acculturation,...etc. You can read the whole sequence,

The Tune of Diversity

A guitar is a guitar -
but add the beat of a drum;
the tremble of a base,
and the emotions that emanate from a violin,
diversity, is a beautiful symphony.

It plays
the tune of your endeavors,
sings the song of my struggles,
and together harmonizes, for us,
a common success.

and if ever you hear the sound
of racism and inequality;
play for me this
very tune,

for this tune will be for
our tired-unchanging world,
a melody of
equal opportunity.

Along Came A Code

The car got codified,
Driving got codified,
Hard drive was invented,
Even computerized,
All things got codified,
All talk problematized,
A stammer came in her lovely voice,
Then a hiccup,
They prolonged it,
Till she got totally dysfunctional,
With anger,
The pushing became,
The most defining aspect,
Of going for education,
Peer pressure,
Was practiced in the guise of racism.

Foreign Moon Tanka

The second tanka in the sequence, Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing


Mom once said
foreign moon bigger
than ours...
the harvest moon hangs high
between Pacific shores


Note: Based on the principles of progression and association employed in Japanese court poetry (for more information, see 'To the Lighthouse: Principles of Progression and Association in Tanka Sequences, ' Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing is first English language tanka sequence about diasporic experiences. In the sequence, I adopt an intersectional approach to exploring a wide range of issues related to immigration, English learning, racialized identity, racism, job seeking, colonization, acculturation,...etc.
