kawabata

your life in forty volumes
shows you had your art
from almost the very beginning

it only takes one word
an adjective perhaps
or an emotive one

to change the meaning
of the work, to give it
a nuance not found otherwise

be it a few pages or a hundred
unmistakably it was always there
and forty volumes later

you have had enough
