Under the Bashō 2017

 

fire you in your element

 

deep water I go all in

 

spider’s climb the rise and fall of his tiny chest

 

nightfall blue pill red pill

 

frantic search near completion a next turn

 

above all skylark

 

nothing out of the ordinary dandelion clocks

 

touch the lines hopscotch and you are dead

 

second skin my old nationality

 

deep autumn that one last nail
