LATE BLOOMS: Two Tankas (The Win)

1

Woe be the loser.
But what truly pains me more?
The victor’s winning!
For victory brings great pride
that to perdition can lead.

2

And they celebrate.
As if the win is their win.
I am sad for them.
They who’ve lost without knowing
and think that they are winning.
