Excerpt

SELF-EFFACEMENT

Walk slowly
For the road is far away
One racing in panic will be troubled
Within self-effacement
Bailing out
“Pleasure”
Weaving the boundless dreams of objects at rest!
Like a painter
Living a penniless life
Act up to splendor

To the flash of overly animalistic emotions
People are taken ill for.

—Hirato Renkichi (translated from the Japanese by Sho Sugita)
