Black Genji

And Other Contemporary Tanka

Authored by Matsukaze

Young, black, and spiritual, Matsukaze is a unique and valuable voice in the world of tanka poetry today. There is nothing like him. Well-educated in the classics, he is as likely to drop Princess Shikishi into a verse as he is to mention Miles Davis. He is equally knowledgeable about contemporary and avant-garde tanka poets, both in Japan and America. His short songs are sung over one, two, three, four, or five lines. In all of them we find the intense observation and lyricism that is the hallmark of tanka poetry.
