then, not Now……Tanka

some music to read my first Tanka by.
it takes a few seconds to begin.
.

.
.
.
.
then, not Now
.
.
.
.
.
the night falls so short…
.
.
this day… it’s already known,
.
.
feel chills in my bones
.
.
before cold air cracks my skin.
.
.
Beast of Imagination,

.
.
.
.

why torture me so
.
.
with your images… of then?
.
.
why is it you tease
.
.
and taunt me with history?
.
.
and clothe me in colors

.
.
.

my eyes do not see?
.
.
i reach hard for… the Moment,
.
.
long for the Present
.
.
of the… what could be Now.
.
.
.

but.. this day…this day…knows then.
