Original English Tanka I performed at Spoken World Live

At Spoken World Live, 2022.3.12 PST (2022.3.13 JST), I presented a reading of five English tanka sequences written by myself.

For almost all of the poems, I added a Japanese tanka based on the same theme as in the original English tanka and played some percussions while I performed reading.
