Talk of Sleet | Burn The Water

Walking the edges after rain after rain. I meet the Happy Panda. A Chinese takeaway in Dronfield Woodhouse. I’ve passed it many times but never when open. One man is inside ordering his food by numbers. I like the way the bog standard orange signage is caught in reflection. I don’t go in. It’s hard to believe but my 85 year old mother has never had a Chinese takeaway meal but there’s still time.

talk of sleet
the smell of chicken chow mein
sits behind my eyes

From deep down under, by Jōsō, translation by Jan Walls

From deep down under
lonely feelings arise
with the falling sleet
— Jōsō (淋しさの 底ぬけて降る 霙かな sabishisa no soko nukete furu mizore kana)
