Blind Willie Johnson (1897-1945), “Jesus Make Up My Dying Bed” (trad.), 1928




random sights

yesterday, Chicago


reading table

Mingling with the wind
the snow comes falling;
mingling with the snow
the wind comes blowing;
by banked coals
I stretch my legs,
idle, idle,
in this grass hut
a shut-in,
and counting, find
that the second month too
like a dream
has come and gone

—Ryokan (1758-1831), translated from Japanese by Burton Watson
