This latest installment of After The Japanese, poems written after the classic Japanese poetry anthology, is below. Inspirations coming, as usual, from a wide variety of sources such as the remarkable painting of Lawrence Paul Yuxweluptun, the U.S. job-creation program of the Great Depression (the Civilian Conservation Corps) and a surreal experience in Olympic National Park among other things.
