A Boy Like Japan

For years

I wanted nothing more

Than to live in Japan

 

Where kombinis sell lunch

And vending machines sell

Anything you want

Anywhere you want

 

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 there

Where the sun rose

 

And then I met you

 

And learned what it was like to want a boy

Like Japan
