above Noborito
the biggest moon in 70 years

to the station with these two young men
friends who've tolerated
a canal walk to nowhere

karin
the chinese quince
an aroma so
sweetly autumn
on three continents

warm melon pan
and
the smell of grilled meat

bats

down to a meter it flew
in warm air, little light
near the persimmons
and roadside shrine bibbed in red

instead of sleeping, they eat,
drawing water and meat from air.

not one of them downed.

only one of us looking up.

Sleepless, Kanagawa - advice

If it's a night sleep cannot find you,
lay awake in a room
of stones and water.
At four, a door opens upstairs.
Footsteps clod across that floor, which will lift you up to dawn.
Note the wet garden, near.
Follow the first bird,
inquisitive.

No
when so divided.

Read
Jabberwocky
and Hopkins.

That is what we grieve for.





she:
" 9/11 and 11/9
the two worst days
in recent American history."

drawing upon the water
painting ink and white
so long left and now returned

the eyes are still stunned, shunted, unclear
yes occasionally the filters fall
and all
seems here
and clear

think again
place
en plein air
