Hello Mt. Fuji, My Favorite Mountain
This is the punishing way:
thin air bubble, genji, high-altitude
underwater helmet sport, books I read,
books I didn't read, my breasts
in your hands ("they're heavy").
But back to the mountain:
sea anemones have so many nerves!
Just poke them and they jiggle like mad.
Or are you talking about sea cucumbers?
Look: I was not a special child, a magic child,
I did not sit by lakes with dogs.
I lie in this bed with a scotch-tape Mt. Fuji,
my favorite mountain,
and I eat all the sushi, and I rub my face raw,
and I wait for the teaching silence
at the top of the mountain,
at the bottom of the sea.
