Windfall Apples

Tanka and Kyoka

Athabasca University Press
The venerable tanka and her upstart cousin kyoka mingle with Kerouac’s American pop haiku in five-liner imagist poems and linked sequences. In Windfall Apples, Richard Stevenson mixes east and west with backyard barbecue and rueful reflection.

Backyard barbecues, rueful reflections
