This also has an alternate title of “True Budo” which you can’t really see in this, the first draft. The 30/30 version which will come up tomorrow is more complete and probably leans more to “True Budo” rather than TWofM, but the latter is less opaque. This is something like the eighth poem that’s somehow related to aikido (being about one of my sensei).
I’m struggling mentally with a lot of things. This poem is perhaps the transition from my more personal concerns (see yesterday’s draft) to what’s going on in the world. This, perhaps, makes the poem more opaque. In any case, please check out the revision when it’s posted tomorrow on the 30/30 blog, which is significantly different.
