Poetry Kanto is fascinated
by the title of my new novel
and creates an image:

Blue the color of ocean water
after passage of a Caribbean ship.


Kyoto graduate students
summarize the book:

Wooden sidewalks, flimsy buildings
blowing away and the old cowboy
who would never again ride
the fading edge of a vast blue horizon.


In conversation with an interviewer
I added:

Homeless blue color
touched the horses, scrub cows
and the lazed cowboy
like a sole Koto over a bather.



The last page I recite in Hiroshima:

The gunfire deafened him
and he did not hear his own Colt sidearm
but saw blue smoke rise from the barrel
as from a gap in the earth.

This is an interesting exercise on the use of a color....and that last stanza is gorgeous:

The gunfire deafened him
and he did not hear his own Colt sidearm
but saw blue smoke rise from the barrel
as from a gap in the earth.
