its reflection in the silver moon.
hair was bathed in sweat.
the night a poem.
A fish swam
brightly through the stars.
A myth swam
in the watery depths.
Ami, my love
for you is like a gem in the sun.
sad the letter arrived.
I'm a poet.
I know it. That's why I wrote it.
In the shoe
of a watchmaker stood a watchmaker.
drank coffee from a slipper.
