the bento box lies open.
she should be back any minute now.
floating in a sea of endless light
watching a red motorcycle trail neon wisps.


an open bento box.
any minute now she should be back.
floating in a sea of endless light
i watch a red motorcycle scatter neon wisps.


open bento box.
any minute now she’ll return.
floating in a sea of endless light
i watch a red motorcycle drape the road in neon wisps.


bento box lie wide open.
she’s left for a minute.
floating in a sea of endless light
watching a red motorcycle drape traffic in neon strands.

it’s so good.


the plain breaks into forest land
stretching horizon deep. on i ride.
no wind plays in this place yet the trees still move.
through emerald leaf spaces stars wheel, and wheel,
shifting roots challenge the horse but nothing more.

riding alongside rivers vast
i gaze at the black shapes down below
each tail swipe traverses the river bed.
but the surface only ripples, and nothing more.
on flat ground the horse strides greatly under empty skies.

body of white fur face of dark fur watched my ascent on mountain paths.
something blazes at extreme speed under the sliding clouds.
body of white fur face of dark fur gazes into the distant
the horse needs no encouragement.
i keep riding. i keep riding.


a semi regular update. oh my. also you can play spot the pokemon references. there’s 2 at least. hopefully i’ll be writing more again. i’m getting the urge to do that. also i have apparently dispensed with capital letters.

oh, i also know the 46 hiragana and the yoon and the handakuon  and the dakuon. onto kanji.

also, as a thing, i’ll be posting youtube vids of the songs i’m listening to as i type these.

yup, that.


red cape

night doesn’t fall anymore.
the moon and stars put in appearances
but it’s all for show.

blaze bright in kana,
flickers and flares through ramen house clouds
in traffic trails neon wisps break like smoke.

dude in a red cape claims he’ll blow it all up
with nothing but his mind
ready to explode.

she stood on this corner once
i smiled at her and nothing more
she hasn’t returned and night isn’t here to give me sleep.


this is all over the show. also, you can play spot the movie/manga reference game. if you want to.

also, i really like this:

I’ve been riding. The duration unknown. I keep riding.
I’m trying to find something. The ruin of the world. Perhaps.
My motives are decayed beyond recognition.
Where I came from I cannot say.
The memory is no longer capable of unfurling such thoughts.

This plain is vast without end or definition. A sea of grass and dirt.
At night it is alive with shadows of great size with mewls from the netherworld.
Dragons scream overhead in arcs of star fires. I keep riding.
By the morning time nothing remains.
Only the sound of the empty wind and horse hoof clatters.

Gazing out from mountain high. The first snow is falling.
My body awoken by the unbroken horse.
Down into the plain. Into the white.
I keep riding.
I keep riding.


I don’t know if regular updates will ever come back, but it’s something.

Also I’m trying to teach myself Japanese, so that’s happening as well.
