Tanka Prose

This is a ‘tanka prose’ created by the ‘Found Poetry’ method from my own piece


I continue to be the monster in their stories….

There might be a day when one of them is in trouble. If I sense that, and am capable of helping out, I offer a hand silently. To accept or not is entirely their prerogative. I see surprised reactions. Who, she…?

the devil in me
does not accept suggestions
control freaks impose
a point of view and demean
people who are different
