Being Good
Explicit, 5,104 words. Isumi, Ogata, random guest apperances.

'My family history is quite straightforward. Nothing tragic; quite the opposite. My father did well for himself. My mother is American. Put the two together and you end up with a blond son who has enough money to drive a sports car and play Go for a living.' Ogata reaches into the inner pocket of his jacket and takes out a packet of cigarettes. He taps one out and lights up, offering the package to Isumi as he does so. When Isumi declines, Ogata asks, 'What about you?'

 

'Much the same,' Isumi says. 'Except that my family isn't rich and my mother isn't American.'

A universe of unmapped grief and love
And new master light is beyond
The pleiades and plow and southern stars.

O soaring
Icarus of outworld, burn bright
The traceries of known skymarks,
Slide the highway planets behind
Your clear waxed wings.

Go conquer the everywhere left
Beyond your sad confinement
In a predicted bonehouse,
Witch thrown riddle of flesh
And water.

O soar until nothing
remains but great glittering holes
In the black godspun shirt over your head.
