In a Japanese Countryside

 

 

 

 

 

I'm in a Japanese

countryside

now,

 

but with whom?

 

 

 

Quiet community,
revived Western humanity,

 

 

that even Mt. Fuji is
tranquil—

 

That even the train cars on

metal rails in train stations

are silently drifting, giving

way for us—sleeping

 

 

 

in our modest households.
