This anxiety

that I’ve forgotten

something I should feel

an acute anxiety over

Reading Takuboku

he reveals the pine needles of his life

but not the forest, not the trees

Komorebi — Japanese for light

dappled through trees

 

Such delicate beauty

until the leaves

turn grey

and fall

apart

I hold in reserve

for teenage girls, uglier

than their mothers
