but that the earth is small Just as a silkworm eats mulberry leaves so is the world devoured by an unknown power to settle in its stomach. Is what fat tens a nation or an ideology? (zn any case it isn’t humans) These translations are based on the texts of the Ishiguki Rin Shrshii, from the Gendurshi Bunko series, no. 46 (Tokyo, ShichGsha, 1971); reprinted with permission. positions 3:3 Winter 1995 Oh, a single thread-like strand soars into mid-air soars higher still That smoke-like strand wraps the earth in a stranglehold And when it’s become a complete cocoon even the pupa inside is killed Just a wisp of silk is drawn, they say. ‘954 Tragedy A hearse came down the Keihin Highway.
