Backstreet, Gion


a boy
a bicycle
sinusoidal
motion

lamps
are lit
eaves are dripping

a bicycle bell
a trail

of froth

a girl
an arc

from axle
to boy

belly to back to shoulder to hand
to face

the rain

the rain

has made them naked
so
her eyes are closed



JDP 98/07




GeoReference:

Gion is a section of old Kyoto, lying on the east bank of the Kamo River,
once famous for its courtesans.
