Ethan knows Japan
A faded courtesan queen
Pop idoru winking sweetly
His associates
Onis wear female guises
Masks in kabuki
Kappas eat sushi
Cut cucumber and wearing
Backwards baseball caps
Ghostly ronin shine
Still-sharp swords gleaming spectral
Working for the mob
Yakuza smiling
Supernatural tattoos
Controlling creatures
Hostesses and whores
Cultists and scientists and
royalty and poor
Ethan laughs and sees
All the universe inside
In-between spaces
