Strangeness Is An Essential Part Of Beauty Draft

Squeezed me out
that hedonistic spirit,
profoundly felt,
of stimulating flavours
inartistic speech

that youthful attitude
provided me with a new zest
showed glimpses
of non-western worlds
Moments of glorious summer weather

an imagined universe
with freshness of feeling,
foreign spheres...
I always looked the other way to
comical provocations
confusions of information

and you cancelled on me.

floating world
haunts me yet
passionate as a lover

The good you have done me
I will keep, fondly
