Tanka 165, Haiku 822

Oops, I’ve posted this twice this week. Sometimes I get confused, yes, I do. Oh well. Let’s just call it an encore performance!

Tanka 165

one three hundred two
arithmetic six divide
square root and round up

assured gestures learned talk
but nonsense equals nonsense

Haiku 822

Two doors down the street
Why bother? said the old man
sweeping up fragments
