All year I’ve been on Tenterhooks.
This is my last chance to warn Tokyo-Yokohama.
The doom I dreamt maybe but a month or two away.
Yet it is hard to breathe much less speak,
for my intended audience are the people
whose deaths I have mourned many years now.
All I want to do is scream,
start the New Year some where else.
Visit friends, relatives, travel, just go
if you can go, then go, be safe, live long,
