West Meets East and Aristotle Meets Basho

Poessayist: William Smith

fifty-fifty

after
five decades
on
this planet
I
think

getting
the young
girl

is
as important
as
being seen
together

Bridging
the Gap

A
fact
is
a fact

and

American
charmer
in Japan

(let's
call
him
Jim)

likes
em
young

(preferably
having
just
acquired
their
drivers
license)

and

He's
50 plus!

(they say
it's
no problem)

but

all
the same

it
drives
women

his
own age

Why
does love

travel
so well?

2004 June

Incomplete
Predication

having
been
divorced

four times

I'm
now
an acknowledged
expert

on
marital
affairs






as
I know

all
724 reasons

why
a marriage

can fail

Paradise

You
can say
almost anything

to
a Japanese woman

said
a longtime Japan hand
cheerfully

unlike
in the
West
where
you'd get slapped



and
better still

you can
get away
with it!

Of course

but
not without
a loss
in sensibility

I
warn myself

White Day

As
for me

only
duty free
chocolates

are
welcome

William Smith
2007 March

On Valentine's Day
women in Japan give chocolates to men, and on March 14 men reciprocate.
