Atlas Poetica 13

A Journal of Poetry of Place in Contemporary Tanka

Authored by M. Kei

Our sequences, collaborative tanka, and tanka prose reach from Neolithic Ireland to medieval Vietnam to memories of modern childhood. Mythology is a common theme, with poets finding inspiration, lessons, secrets-and terror-in the ancient stories. The bones of Jewish children become a plaque in a Paris street; in New Mexico, a woman finds oblivion under the fiery skies. No longer are monsters hidden in the mists; they enter our veins and run openly, but invisibly, through the streets of our cities.
