+ Fav Poet


watching anime, she feigns
a high scream of glee, seeing
where a mushroom cloud should be. . . . 
a flower rises

*Kawaii means “Cute.” Japan has become the 
culture of “cuteness” and “Kawaii” is often uttered,
 especially by young girls, on seeing anything they
 deem adorable or pretty. It is seen in anime - the
Japanese cartoons -  and in mascots such as Hello
Kitty and focuses on “otaku” which is a kind of 
“pop cult fanaticism“ which some see as an escape
from the reality of the horrible trauma of WWII.
