団結したアリのごちそう

甘い調和

 

picture on the wall

man’s eyes look at me

unblinking

男の目が私を見る

still the smell

on the luggage

まだそのにおい

荷物に

 

coming home tired

you are waiting for me calmly

with a cooled melon

あなたは穏やかに私を待っている

冷やしたメロンと一緒に

finally swelled

my wallet

ようやくふくらんだ

overtaken by the flight

of a metal eagle

the bay networked

with the sunny silk

on the threshold

we touched ourselves by the warmth
