Old socks to new rags –
To let me throw out old rags –
That were once old socks –
How I decide when old rags
Are too old to keep using

Notes to this poem…
A little system I have in my life described for you in a tanka. 🙂
I give so many things in my life a “second life” to save wastes, whether by me or given to someone else like mason jars.
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.
