Saving Face

Current mood: chagrined but relieved

Writing and Poetry


The plural form of
tanka is tanka - no "s".
The same for haiku.

I've disgraced myself!
The only way to save face
is hara-kiri.

That's old school, Mama-san - just
drop pant and spread cheek.

(From Pandora Blue's The Little Book of Poems About Poetry and Poets)
