Giraffe by Amano Tadashi (麒麟 / 天野忠)

Whatever
you are looking at
is so high up
that I
can’t see it at all.
For you
spending long hours
brooding over theories
is simply impossible.
And yet
your distant world
and the shape of you
just standing there silently across from me
seem so very natural
that I understand.
I am brought to tears
with understanding.

あんたが
見つめているものは
あんまり高いので
わたしは
見つめることができない。
あんたが
思いつめていることを
思い当てることは
とてもできない。
けれど
あの遠い世界と
だまって
ただ向かい合って立っているあんたの姿は
あんまり自然なので
よくわかる。
涙が出るほど
わかる。
