A Boy Like Japan

For years,

I wanted nothing more

Than to live in a land called Japan


Where kombinis sell lunch,

And vending machines are friends at every corner.


I learned the language

That would get me there

And plotted ways across the ocean;


Arrival was a sweetness I could taste,

Even with nothing more than a skeleton recipe before me.


I could not imagine

Wanting something more

Than I wanted to be where the sun rose.


And then I met you.


And learned what it was like to want a boy

Like Japan.
