Moving is exhausting, and it’s barely begun.

A Poetic Exchange on the Kamo River’s Edge in Kyoto, 7/24 (AKA “Yes, My friends and I are, indeed, grad students in East Asian Studies.”)
Now on the river,
Cold drink clutched in my dry hands,
I drink to friendship.
Such memories may fade,
But a chu-hai never dies.
Oh, how the moon shines
On the river of a thousand years.
The light never dies.
It was the moon of Genji,
But tonight the neon glows.
Dancing on the surface of
the Kamo river -
Is your light not the same light
As that which Genji once saw?
