Learning to live with –
An alter ego halfway
Around the world –
Cause someone here can’t handle
One hundred percent of me

Notes to this poem…
Since I had this request, I’ve only become more such that a shell that once held me would no longer able to do so. I just don’t have my identity in full, so that nobody would be able to find all of me since I’ve never told anybody about it. It’s really like two people to the world and the Internet. 🙂
Refer to previous Tanka 83 for how I’m changing my life to get back my full identity. 🙂
The poems titled Tanka, followed by a number, are tanka composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Tanka collection.
