Tanka T146

What if you could sell –
Time which you had left to live –
In chunks as you wished?
Without being allowed to
Know how much time you had left

Notes to this poem…

A little trippy concept of a tanka I thought up while walking home from errands on the Halifax Waterfront, where I love to walk and think.

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.
