The Myth Of Sisyphus - Poem by Chenou Liu

A Tanka Prose

people awake
work, eat, and sleep...
the Mondays of present
follow the rhythm
of the Sundays in past

Blank years in and out. This is daily life. And then the sudden moment of being: the stab of memories, the sting of longings, the slaughter of time. There is no screaming tragedy in ordinary life.

Topic(s) of this poem: existentialism, life, lifestyle

Form: Tanka
