Yesterday,
the end.
So much depends.

Today,
the rains.
Too much remains.

    cryptic, or rather, zen ~

    I just love the way “haynaku” is broken, suggesting hay play (a pair of people “rolling” in it, for example). Or the needle in a haystack thing.

    I see contrast in “hey” and “nay,” like someone wants to say hi, but also doesn’t. Then there’s also the “nay” and “yes” at odds with one another. Words like “depends” and “remains” make me think of old age. I see divorce or break-up, a later in life relationship or marriage, or just the tail end of a marriage that has been rocky. I’m picturing her still alive, but wearing Depends, so her quality of life is poor. And he has already died, leaving her alone. The rains represent her crying.

    God, this is one million percent about my parents, and now I’m crying.

  3. Okay, my internet is being crazy right now. So bear with me. But anyway, I was looking at this comically and at depends as Depends and someone here is suffering from diarrhea. And rains, well yes, what of tomorrow? A million more Depends.
