2 poems in Quadrant

 In Poems


The May 2016 issue of Quadrant magazine contains two of Andrew’s poems–“Café Senryu” (which is a three-senryu set) and “Pond Tanka” (which is a two-tanka set). “Café Senryu” is reproduced below:

Cafe Senryu 

Upmarket café—
looks like I’m the only one
without a gym pass. 

At the next table
two well-manicured women
whining and dining. 

For a bigger buzz
the mating flies plunge into
my cappuccino!
