Euclid’s Quill

An artist is a person who lives in the triangle

after the angle which we may call common sense

has been removed from this four-cornered world.

from The Three Cornered World

by Natsume Soseki

write angles~

from cover to cover,

a journey on paper

without map or compass,

to delineate the boundaries

(a to b to c)

of this three-cornered world


when you have unraveled

its Euclidian perfection,

pass with gentle temerity into

the interdimensional world

you have wrought

from a thousand sleepless nights

with illogical precision


it is there where

your dreams lie in wait
