Bashō After Cinderella, Deborah Kolodji

Cinderella Tile Panel, Edward Burne-Jones at William Morris Tile

BASHŌ AFTER CINDERELLA

(i)

a glass slipper
in the middle of the road
spring rain

(ii)

thistles in bloom
village gossip
after the ball

(iii)

pumpkin vine
a mouse remembers
how to neigh

(iv)

fairy dust snow
perfectly-sized boots
for her bare feet
