then by Jikkoku Osamu (そのころ / じっこくおさむ)

in a city called City
everything
broke melted
washed away
,
LOVE
EGO
and of course
WOR
DS
,
when they broke
strangely bright
it was very
beautiful
;
what didn’t melt
was
merely
st
on

まち と いう まち では
すべて が
つぶれて とけて
ながれて いた

LOVE が
EGO が
そして もちろん
コトバ


つぶれる とき
あやしく ひかって
とても
きれいで

とけぬ もの は
ただの
いしころ


NOTES:

The original Japanese language poem was taken from the Jikkoku Osamu Corner.
