A watched pot never boils

in #poetry3 years ago

A watched pot never boils,
only seethes, writhes, roils, bubbles, twists, heaves
upwards against the metal
that surrounds and fastens it in place.


Tanka is a form of Japanese poetry which translates as "short song." It is 31 syllables and often broken up into five lines of 5/7/5/7/7 syllables.
