Saihou Jodo

who will carry me to saihou jodo
what to bring there what to wear?
   take me to the top of a mountain
   leave something behind to forget

who'll build another kogetsudai
fire my body at the silvery moon?
   leave something behind to forget
   falling into orbit & spinning space

who'll throw me into ginshadan
drown all my past in the wet sand?
   falling into orbit & spinning space
   shutting my eyes in the darkness

who will carry me to saihou jodo
what to bring there what to wear?
   shutting my eyes in the darkness  
   take me to the top of a mountain

experiencing other cultures, writing about them, seeing the world…you’re a lucky dave…if only i could get out of tear-wearying philly…or ice-cold new england…or hot-dog new york….

Hi Adam,

I feel for you in Philly! At least here in Tokyo it is not snowing. Thanks for your kind words – it has indeed been fantastic to see the world. Today, alas, is my last day of travelling. I`m heading back to Melbourne this afternoon to resume normal services. I`d very much like to put out a book myself … hopefully something will come along soon. Then, who knows, maybe an east-coast USA tour! Springsteen style!!

best wishes
Davei
