Rain

At that quiet hour, in the deep of the night, when all but dreams drowned in slumber, rain started to fall from the heavens all across the land.

Each drop, a thousand and one trillion drops in all, hit the ground like drumbeats to a heart, a veil of lullabies spoken in liquid words.

But the raindrops stopped in mid-air, suspended like crystal balls, each reflecting the other, a thousand and one trillion reflections in all.

Shhh little one, shhh…  It has rained for an eternity…

Can you not hear it?

Can you not discern the whispers of your ancestors?

The Three Princesses of Red


.

On that night there was a feast set forth…

The Three Princesses attended in full regalia,

One from winter’s grove, north of England,
One from the Black Forests of Germania,
And one from the ancient beaches of Silk Asia

Of sacrifice they spoke,
And wine they drank,
But for blood and gore they lusted.

A little nasty,
A little lisp…

And so began the legacy of
The Princesses of Red…

matcha

.

Years ago, I walked with her through the Emperor’s garden and visited a lakeside tea house and drank matcha in quiet presence on a late afternoon.

Afterward we walked along a path and watched giant koi  grace the subface of a moat bejeweled by sprinkles from a passing raincloud…

I was carrying his umbrella with me, and I carried the umbrella out of the garden, across rivers and oceans and years, in search of a cup of tea and haunted by the witnessed stories of those once koi…

But, for twelve years I could not opportune a moment nor a chance to partake of another cup of tea and reminisce of the bittersweet lossgain of a passed father, even as I carried said umbrella with me as comfort and tether…  That is until…

A few days past, in a moment of gasp, I willed and parted with the umbrella and permitted the void to rush in, or a river to drown me, “you are everywhere, not in this or that, but in shared moments and in our relation, in our bond, in our honor,” I spake in my heart to him.

Fear, like black ink poured through me and hushed my voice and kindled a new terrifying hope.

And so, as I shared this story today with a gentle friend.  True enough, but by the grace of all that is nuanced, not long after, a few moments to be sure, and that after twelve years of search, I walked into the store in front of me, as it had been so chanced, and with intent bought a bamboo whisk and a tin of imperial matcha and…

Tonight, in quiet prayer, and a moment of silence, my son and I shared a bowl of tea, and the very heavens became our umbrella.

Dem-dem-dem-free-free-dem
Dem-dem-dem-free-free-dem
I’m so tangy, people call me Matangi
Goddess of word, bitches I’m a keep it banging


Truth is like a rotten tooth, you gotta spit it out!

Let the bottom two, let my wisdom work it out
Big on the underground, can’t knock me down
Vicki Leekx bitches, better buy it on demand
I Sleep in my tent and then I stand by it too
I can say lots with a little words or few like
Adam had ‘em, yeh, me, the madame
I’ll introduce you to the d-d-dem-dems

Come let me go, do you like my perfume?

Made it at home with some gasoline and shrooms
Oil and water are two extremes
We like fucking carpets, you like fucking brooms
Why is your tattoo some ugly looking thing?
I got many designs they’re learning on Bing
My cousin got his DCS he’s decorating
He’s handy you might need him when I’m finishing what I’m saying
Just be frank, you my stan, understand!
I don’t care what you smell what’s you fucking joint
A lot to be pissed they’re mates, and we’re yanks
Cause it’s not me and you, it’s the fucking banks!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Dem-dem-dem-free-freekdom
Dem-dem-dem-free-freekdom
Free them, free them, free them, free them (freedom – freedom)
Truth is like a rotten tooth, you gotta spit it out [spits sound]
Let the bottom two, let my wisdom work it out
The world is ours, sending your sordid powers
The words out now, hope you heard em like cows
A bikini body, worth a tally or a rich
Bitch, my swag rich, can’t touch this
So click, click, click, please get off my dick
Just ’cause I’m a mom it don’t make me thick
I’m a overweight, heavyweight, female Slick Rick
If you need the cheese then my shit cost stake
I got – a bug spray, bucket, stick
I got – tons of the fun stuff tons and tons of it
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
Bring the noise when we run upon them!
