Poetry #340
(published July 26, 2007)
The Hot-Spring Geisha
by Jonathan Hayes
Will not entertain you
like those in Tokyo
with their sophistication.

She awaits your arrival by train,
deep in the snow country
of Japan's west coast mountains.

The cold winter winds
of Siberia come down
and suck up moisture
from the Sea of Japan,
powdering her face
with snowflakes,
attempting to purify.

Yet, her expertise
is warming your body
and cleansing you
with her dirty eyes.
