Today's poem is by Fiona Sze-Lorrain
Still in the Night Fields of Hokkaido
Inattentive rain. Inattentive star.
Water and light in this violent faint
life. The fields, say
the ancients, an unwinged sea
of lamps. In the space,
concentric silence expanding
outwards. Into the stillness,
and on into distance.
twice. They register an air
between real and improvised time.
Crickets I can't
finish my line. Nature suddenly
feels so foreign
and I just broke my camera.
