Artist's Description

Ode to Kafka (on the shore)

it rained mackerel
the day the streets ran red
in different halves of the hole
kill a cat to make a flute
perhaps you’ll claim a soul
genders crossed
dreams were lost
looking for the bridge
somewhere on a mountain
refuge waits upon the ridge
the old man lost his feline tongue
the youth found hope in the sea
silent winds lulla bide the young
clouds cried extacy
a featherless colonel advanced the plan
a stone was turned at last
in the bloody entrails of the labyrinth
the future determined the past
final choices were driven
the sad lady forgiven
the mother the lover the wife
while in the moment
the portal closed
dark crow found meaning in life
we fight battles
not our own
to win the ones that are
head back to the sands
that measure your time
sliding through hands from afar

  • one is a series from the book of the same name by Haruki Murakami.
