a good interview with a modern day Tanka poet

i giggled when i read the piece:

Like getting up to leave
a hamburger place --
that's how I'll leave
that man

Featured tanka taken from "Salad Anniversary" (Kodansha International; 1990), translated by Juliet Winters Carpenter from Machi Tawara's "Sarada Kinenbi" (Kawade Shobo Shinsha; 1987).
