Tanka 184, 185

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

Tanka 184

Eleven measured,
examined in increments –
the ruler stretches
reaches out for the number
reels it in. Names it. Knows it.

Tanka 185

aqua-black tangle
electric-shock potential
chevron-pattern coils
curled on the kitchen counter
What species? Power cord snake.
