A Tanka About An Endless Stream Of Thens - Poem by Chenou Liu

the 4th tanka in the sequence, Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing

'to me, time is
an endless stream of thens'
I turn away
from this new Canadian
to avoid his gaze

Note: Based on the principles of progression and association employed in Japanese court poetry (for more information, see 'To the Lighthouse: Principles of Progression and Association in Tanka Sequences, ' http: // , Politics/Poetics of Re-Homing is first English language tanka sequence about diasporic experiences. In the sequence, I adopt an intersectional approach to exploring a wide range of issues related to immigration, English learning, racialized identity, racism, job seeking, colonization, acculturation, ...etc. You can read the whole sequence, http: //
