Tanka T121

There’s a girl outside –
Really angry at her ex –
Viciously screaming –
At 5 A.M. Saturday –
Being single ain’t that bad

Notes to this poem…

Just relating a true event that woke me up… and my mind went straight to seeing if I could compose a short poem about it before going back to sleep. I did, and thankfully had my smart phone near by to type it in before I forgot it in the morning. It was fast, and the thought was so comforting about being single that I fell asleep again almost right away after typing the poem into a bright white little screen. And I slept quite well into Sunday morning, too, I might add! 🙂

The T-series poems 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.
