Genji Monogatari: Suma

The beaches are
beautiful, the cuisine
is excellent—if only
the stock market
hadn't opened in
negative territory!
The price of crude oil
is a psychotic ghost
that haunts my
poetry. There is the
possibility that I will
be exiled. I keep on
my bright red Mickey
Mouse pajamas as a
figurative act of
mourning & cut a kind
of quasi-expressionist
sturm und drang figure
in the scarecrow-making
workshop. Sometimes
with a touch of irony,
sometimes in despair,
I turn to the insights
of Derrida & Hegel
to understand &
name my condition.
