Gan Yu - 20

Here in the Floating World

Reality maintains itself

In a highly volatile state

To a Nobel gas

Quite dissimilar

Ever ready to make

Prepared to admit

To many mistakes

Or else quickly

Picking up stakes

And packing the

Calistoga wagon

In every case

To an uncertain future

We in the Floating World

Are forever bound
