  1. The disruption of a semantic flow is thematically and psychologically effective, and Peter's style of kire (cutting) is close to what Professor Hasegawa Kai articulates in his videoed lecture (Haiku Cosmos 2): a cut with psychological ma.

    And this haiku could be read as a poetic rendering of the thematic motif explored in "Poetry,Language, Thought" by Martin Heidegger.
