“The train came out of the long tunnel into the snow country. The earth lay white under the night sky.”
—Snow Country, Yasunari Kawabata
(Anybody can get on the right train
But can you get off the wrong one?)
YK is everywhere
In a Tokyo hotel
By the bay in Izu
With an odoriko
In green lavers and asters
In tiny beers
We have found more than beauty
We have found myogha - "a fortunate happening; a blessing that cannot be surpassed in happiness"
And myori - "to receive more fortune than one deserves"
