truth is, i have never taken much pleasure in the visible world;
ideas are better;
and i never feel the need to recreate them with words;
thoughts are better.
so you can keep your grinding stones and axes;
let me lay under a cherry blossom tree
which drips in sunlight;
keep me far away from courts and crimson kings
and gladitorial amphitheatres;
let me be as a fly in sunlight.
