Merry Merry; I like to you marry!
Please request your father to do hurry,
Otherwise I shall think new
With out you.

I do unwrap my silk kimono
Too reticent and bashful,
In the solitary, tranquil bathroom-
Only a sparrow looked at me
From top of the window glass!

Every day I gather fragmented pieces of poems
Stand in a posture of prayer
In front of the poems, illuminated dazzle flicker
in my eyes, face, body and heart

Setting sun of the Century stealthy signs joint statement
On a memorandum of understanding
The news was circulated personally
