osaka

hot-lanta
okonomiyaki
okee nokee dokee

walk the multicolor dreamboat streets a-plenty
walk the lanes alleys cobbles
hot dogs on a stick
endless ramen huts
circus clown drummer boy
with pressed penny machines &
popcorn for sale in his likeness
draws a crowd of selfie snappers

giant plastic crabs crawl the walls eyes a-popping 1-2-3
neon reds & whites & yellows
sushi houses
izakaya

sake
asahi
sapporo on draft

canals festooned with
lantern walls & stalls & malls
a dance of glowstick waving
orange blue fiesta

kobe beef
in life sized photo reproduction
emblazoned upon the
alleyways

&
right
within it all
a sacred shrine

hozen-ji

hung with paper lanterns

2.

within the city walls & dolls
& endless alleyways,
a shrine

the bell rings out as the monk
prays

hanging lanterns
all in a row

lit up
like the city
surrounding

osaka
a bauble
a maze
