on the eve of your

on the eve of your
thirty-ninth
birthday, i pull
Bleu from the
shelf and give it
a spin – after
eight and a
half years, it is
good to know
that there are
some things
one can
count on

when Kanji Watanabe

when Kanji Watanabe
walks through rain
and loneliness, body long
numb, mind
unflappable, we
extend sympathy
like a handkerchief, a loose
gesture, twisting in mid-air

when Takeshi Shimura
sits on the swing and starts
Gondola no uta, eyes still
flickering, mind
unflappable, we
pull down our
sleeves, an inescapable
gesture, a gloveless sting
