Transience is Truth

Sing Iroha Uta, your young girl voice

Younger even than the bridge to Shikoku

Where we will travel together

As far as Mount Kōya; two traveling together,

Pilgrims for Kōbō Daishi

Who meditates still in his deep mountain grave.



Sing of the blossoming flowers who scatter tomorrow,

Our world's questions of change.

Sing of the deep mountains of vanity we cross today

Where never shall delude us dreams without depth.

Step with the left foot,

Step with the right foot.



I become ashes with each new step,

To scatter in the morning sky

While you dance in white

With the women of Shikoku.

When the sun is low, we shall cross the bridge,

Two traveling together.


In homage to the great Kûkai, whose words and thoughts I cherish.

Kûkai would have been proud.

Dreams December, dark and dry

Screams the stark September sky.


His book lies open on the window desk,

Where the wind riffles each thin yellow page

And days thinner yet dance a grave burlesque.


He must oblige the cinnamon faces,

Ancestors pleading from an old desk drawer,

Sepia ghosts in seedy, worn laces.


His name wanes first, a whirling swirling wave

In the womb of the salubrious sea,

Washed at long last in her hallowed nave.


Recalls him not warm July

Nor will May. Nor will I.

How uncharacteristic... I'm so used to your arrythmias keeping their own characteristic pulse. Here, it's as if you turned and walked away mid sentence. Forceful.



Who have you been reading?
