Tokyo's goals


Tokyo hardly ever cries.

Tokyo rarely smiles.

Tokyo soulfully tames her outer life.

Tokyo manfully braves her inner knife.

Tokyo's outer goal

Is everywhere in the heart of nowhere.

Tokyo's inner goal

Is nowhere near frustration,

humiliation or consolation.

Tokyo's inner goal

Is in her mind's perfected

Silence-Light. ```
