Second choka inspired by Kamono’s ‘An Account of My Hut’:

 

Winds will sweep away

Man’s attempts at division

and segregation.

Disaster exceptional?

Don’t believe it’s so.

People interpret events;

seek correlations.

Houses float downriver.

The poor don’t philosophise:

they don’t have the time

and they value what’s useful,

rather than ephemera.
