Slice of Mooncake and Pinot Noir Tanka

written both for the Chinese Moon Festival
and in response to Haruki Murakami's remark: All I do is keep on running in my own cozy, homemade void, my own nostalgic silence

alone again
in this Land of Maple Leaf
with a slice of mooncake
I drink Pinot Noir, dwelling 
in nostalgic silence
