    Indochina, Capa jumps Jeep, two feet creep up the road
    To photo, to record meat lumps and war,
    They advance as does his chance – very yellow white flash.

    A violent wrench grips mass, rips light, tears limbs like rags,
    Burst so high finally Capa lands,
    Mine is a watery pit. Painless with immense distance
    From medic from colleague, friend, enemy,
    foe, him five yards from his leg, From you Taro.

    Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.

    3:10 pm, Capa pends death, quivers, last rattles, last chokes
    All colours and cares glaze to grey, shrivelled and stricken to dots,
    Left hand grasps what the body grasps not – le photographe est mort.

    3.1415, alive no longer my amour, faded for home May of '54
    Doors open like arms my love, Painless with a great closeness
    To Capa, to Capa Capa dark after nothing,
    re-united with his leg and with you, Taro.

    Do not spray into eyes – I have sprayed you into my eyes.

    Hey Taro!
