Household by Amano Tadashi (家庭 / 天野忠)

Because I scolded my kid
in a loud voice,
now
I have to comfort my dog
in a soft voice.

You’re a good dog
aren’t you,
a very good dog,
yes you are. . . .

Looking troubled,
the dog
reluctantly wags its tail.

大きな声で
子供を叱ったので
いまは
小さな声で
犬を撫でている。

いい子だな
おまえは
いい子だよ
おまえは…。

迷惑そうに
犬は
しぶしぶ尾を振っている。
