THE LEAP OF THE FROG OF BASHO

A magnetize Wordcinema
by AZsacra ZARATHUSTRA
English translation by AIDar ISMAGILOV



the way of haiku
is the Way of
Abyss


theatre de
la Crueldad
Noh


mask for
tearing out
the face


with own
chopped off
head


to fly into
petals of
the rose


the Abyss
didnít look into
the chasm


the Flame
didnít become
the dragon-fly


too strongly
cried out
the Fire!


thatís
all for
the truth:


the speck of dust
in the Emptiness of
the Wasteland


Basho hadnít
protected
the frog


just
still
pound


never
fallen
drop


to nowhere
didnít fly
the raven


if
crucified
the worm Ė


eyelashes
run into
the tear


to stay on
broken
legs


stay, bitch,
on broken
legs!


this is Other
Flowering of
the Garden:


donít want
to be
a Flower Ė


then
bloom with
blood
