Yoko Ono kami samma Paisley kimono Heart Sutra On your feet you wear the glass The blew out of Hiroshima's heart Yoko Ono kami samma Naked honey with milk father You stay in bed so they can't say You enticed them to fight another day Yoko Ono kami samma Wailing onna on bridge mother You walk to the edge and you go over Falling backwards into River, Brother! Yoko Ono kami samma Scissor beauty cut from lover Stand in holy conceptual mother Holding baby in arms forever Yoko Ono yamato-damashii Heart of darkness hold me gently Sway me in your perfect arms Mother to mother suffering Safe from harm Yoko Ono kami samma Scream me to sleep From one horror to another Yoko Ono ii kami samma We know sacrifice We know each other.
Yamato Damashii – Japanese ‘spirit’ or the ‘Spirit of Japan’.
Onna – woman
ii kami samma – Meaning good goddess
As the mother of a half Japanese child, as an artist, as a woman, as a screaming banshee who suffers from generational pain, I cannot express the sheer depth of my love for Yoko Ono and her beautiful John. Thank you Yoko Ono. Love, Detroit
