Kafka scape


Tokyo university of the Arts, Toride-shi, Ibaragi, Oct, 2008

The terrace I found by chance

Is between high walls

And looks a bit like a room

Where trees and the sky

Appear before my eyes.


In borrowed light

Under a borrowed umbrella feels like a solitary space,

And I imagine a house each time I stamp the image of a house.


The view is cut out;

The sky and the trees are part of the room,

And then become a shed skin, pure white.


The scenery and time pass through me.

A location no one knows

Becomes my room in the moment

And, in a process like Kafka's castle,

I draw a landscape leading to no destination.
