Tanka ~ assignment one for ENGL 3440

Ten girls stand framed
in the studio mirror.
Twenty arms ripple—
in delicate unison
the fat one dances in back.




*Personally, I believe the best thing about tanka form isn't it's brevity, or what it says, but how it makes you think long after you are done reading. Trust me, the above isn't meant to be derogatory in any way. The fact that I feel I must clarify this so as not to tick off someone who doesn't get it frustrates me to no end about our culture.
