To for Tanka #tanka

#Haiku Happenings #7: Trent’s latest #tanka for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge!

Trent's World (the Blog)

Please perform it, Sam
She can take it, so can I
You know what I mean
Here is looking at you, kid
We will always have Paris

We assume the roles
Act the parts we think are real
To hide our true selves
But sometimes I think I know
The real you behind those eyes

OK, a two fer one deal.  Play some of the old songs.  Play it, Sam.  Hmm, but I can’t say “Play”, now can I?  OK, so I did something a little more serious.  Maybe.

These was written for Colleen’s Weekly Poetry Challenge.  The key words today were “Play” and “Guess”.  Following her suggestion, I didn’t use the words, I used only synonyms.
