Kori nigaku enso ga nodo o uruoseri
Bitter–tasting ice —
Just enough to wet the throat
Of a sewer rat.
(Bitter–tasting Ice — by Matsuo Basho.) **Can’t express what this poem is saying to me. Evokes such depth of feelings.
Ha ha ha. Liked it.
A shocking ending I was not expecting. I caught myself giggling.
