Its Black Absence November 27, 2014

Posted by The Typist in Poetry, Shield of Beauty, The Narrative, The Typist.

Notice the crow
prominent in
the artist’s calligraphy
(roughly translated
“Crow is flown”)
is not pictured
in his kakejiku

its black absence
from the spray
of violet oleander,
pendulant, suggesting
a semaphore
of departure

a single petal falls
like a farewell tear
