[ Poetry ]
In this 20-page limited edition chapbook published by the esteemed Toronto-based Anstruther Press, Takatsu revisits his travels to Japan, primarily in 2012, as a musician, from the perspective of a writer now. A memoir of the past and lament of the present, it is weighed with concerns of our technologically and electromagnetically charged capitalist society, juxtaposed against the mystical and spiritually-imbued natural cosmos. Kawatare (彼は誰) is a poetic Japanese word for the time of twilight, dusk or dawn, when night and day merge, and one cannot recognize faces. This is also when the supernatural occurs — the worlds between here and there.
