anime bloodlines

penned from an inky


lines blur like ninja speed

like the vision of blind samurai

like purple haired girls

bobbing on the sunken


finding home on the hid-

den and idyllic side of the


mouth speaks tongue

manifests desires strong like

gundam resistant and rewarding

we are drawn by a foreign hand


written in the universal language

the eternal question “who are you”
