Featuring cherita!

December 30, 2018

Happy Haiga Day!

I am so ready to be done with 2018. It's been a horror show. This poem is a cherita terbalik, which is simply a cherita's 1-2-3 lined stanzas rearranged. In the third stanza I've borrowed words and sentiments from Lincoln's First Inaugural Address, March 1861.

we've been scorched
by smoldering hellfires...

two thousand nineteen

better angels now requested
to bring fire hooks to break
through to our mystic memories
