ride the subway train line shuffle
over to demichyanagi station
indian thalis
chai tea
jaipur tips
walk to where the rivers merge
bluebird day
mountains abound
some wearing snow
a flurry of hawks
we walk up through the neighborhood
to an orange tori gate
shimogamo shrine
a bustle of activity
preparing for new year’s eve & day
jangle of some bells
score some astrological zoological amulets
rats & oxen red & violet
then through sleepy streets & intersections
across the kamo river
ancient hilltops calling out above
river of rapids
a town full of sights
stop past a temple
pure land school
another
& another
a wooded shrine to boot
locate subway station
ride her down underground

emerge at nijo-jo station
under setting castle sun
peruse the neighborhood market
grab some groceries
pizza & beer
shave & a haircut
at sanjo barbershop

japan
a nice one
