Selected Tanka Prose: A Walking Shadow

stage lights on . . .
my copy of Macbeth
and its cover spotted
as if by white molds

I start reciting in a hoarse voice, Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow . . . In the back of my mind, I wonder if there is another tomorrow for a gentile like me in this promised land.
