A ghost ship washed ashore in Japan
Full of cargo and sailor’s bones.
The Japanese for “endless drifting”
Is “mugen no hyōryū”, which means:
“Dust motes in sunlight
Float like lotus blossoms
On the still pond”
Sure, I just made that up,
As did the sailors
Scrawling haikus of goodbye
On the walls of their bunks.
