I have been missing for a long time! I've been busy running a publishing company called Inspiritus Press, and being highly active in the Toronto small press and poetry scene. 
          	But I'm dropping some quick good news: my first poetry chapbook has been published by the esteemed Toronto-based Anstruther Press and is available! It's a beautiful, minimalist, little limited edition book, which will become rare and out-of-print soon. Be sure to grab a copy!
          	Just $10 CAD via my publisher's site: http://www.anstrutherpress.com/new-products/kawatare-by-s-takatsu
          	Or a signed copy for an additional amount and shipping fees at: http://stakatsu.com/project/kawatare/
          	In this limited edition chapbook, Takatsu revisits his travels to Japan, primarily in 2012, as a musician, from the perspective of a writer now. A memoir of the past and lament of the present, it is weighed with concerns of our technologically and electromagnetically charged capitalist society, juxtaposed against the mystical and spiritually-imbued natural cosmos. Kawatare (彼は誰) is a poetic Japanese word for the time of twilight, dusk or dawn, when night and day merge, and one cannot recognize faces. This is also when the supernatural occurs — the worlds between here and there.


わあー。。。すごい!You have such an amazing and comprehensive vocabulary. So talented! I really like you as a writer :) You got me awestruck in every line of your stories and that's not an overstatement. I wish you more ideas to come, good luck, and may God bless you always! :)) お疲れ様でした。!
