Mono no Aware

Meanwhile in Tokyo,
5 cm/s:
Petals and traffic

But out the window
She stares past buses and trains
Notes fall from the sky

Like acid rain, wash
The face of a marble statue:
Nature cleansing sin

He now stands faceless,
Catches words, fingers frozen
His smile lingers still

In her stream of dreams:
Hero resting at the center
Against current news

She steps out her car
And walls past buses and trains
To catch words for him

Hands gripped umbrella
Too tight, a love turned sword fight:
Changed fast like cars sped

Notes fall from the sky:
5 cm/s:
“I have” and “loved you”.
