Thought Crimes

 A slight detour to Bordeaux in the rain again, a 9x12 oil on canvas.

I'm still reading the poet Robert Hass.  In an essay on Korean poetry, he mentions Yi Sang, a 20th century poet, born in 1910, who was arrested in Japan in 1937 for "thought crimes".  He died shortly thereafter of tuberculosis.
