November Harp and Mirror


A cricket's insouciant
late-summer
song

polyphonic
robusterium as
scat

singing cross
talk a come-on from the
get-go

come down
just to skittering
creaks of late

broken
questionings left hanging
in the dark




on harps and mirrors and tympanal variations

Mori Shunkei

Insects on Reeds, c. 1820
