Chikuzan hitori tabi (a goblin poem of the milky way)





young blind Chikaru (a key in sleeve to pleasure cloth)
was given vinegared drum (kyoka)

the thirteen lagoon word
and three sandpiles (a cloth bag wrote it)

first surface (red mesh)
pillow word (chihayaburu)

==

young blind Chikaru (a key in sleeve to pleasure cloth)
sometimes singing well (uma no hone')
sometimes not (kakekotoba)

impromptu Iwaki (pleasure turns to gore)
cloud bamboo (Tanabata)
rain bamboo (Hikoboshi)

beach and mountains (sumi-no-e no)
entwined // eating an apple
with the lonely cattle (qinyu)

==

young blind Chikaru (a key in sleeve to pleasure cloth)
hospital-like // wind and snow

sealed shamisen mountain (seal)
and thirteen sandpiles (the other expands)

red lattice (red plaid)
I am the shamisen (o how white the frost on magpie bridge straircase)
