Although I noticed this poem was already chosen, I felt out of all the others I read from my anthology, it best captured the meaning of this chapter. It fits with the Myriad Leaves of Words because of its haiku-esque structure and its contents. The poem is titled July and its lines are all snippets of that month for Matuk. Every word holds meaning and together they make a snapshot of July. Line two especially exemplifies the Japanese phrase 'words leaves' to me because it unites imagery and experience to create the moments the poem is about.
So I kind of understood indirection to be sort of metaphorical speak or a way of writing a poem in which emotions are understood but not explicitly stated. I chose this poem because it seems to be using phrases like "When the city is rotting" and "Feathered language / Heavy as freedom" to convey emotion without explicitly stating what that emotion is.
