met this man who could float

a macrobiotic cruise—

dark hair, animated eyes

small stature buoyancy

life force life preserver

like macrobiotic food

well chewed cereals and local veg

traditionally wise, Edo edge

food has energy

dude has energy


he was a Golden Gate

big bridge from yin to yang

his special method of touch

touching new shores

over our processed fog


I wanted to take him home

in my suitcase
