Tanka 177, 178

From the collection The Immediate and No Sooner, published in 2021.

Tanka 177

that all-afternoon
dog barking that goes on there
the dog I never
have set eyes on him but my
ears would know him anywhere

Tanka 178

A good hiding place
old age is not. All your years
painfully honest
with you. A clear light shines now
and the past. Forgive.
