Rifle

A river that looks like an elongated swamp flows,
and the walls are routed along the bank.

Part of the wall was blown up,
and there were unbroken rips.

When you project your face from there,
you can see a group of housing complexes that line up
like a tombstone against the pseudo horizon
of the grassland as a background.

In these housing estates,
an indefinite number of residents are infested,
and daily life without ramblings is running.

A professional housewife, a fascinating young wife,
is probably tired of possessing a rifle
that might be illegal and shooting sparrows and crows.

For that reason
she will aim at the forehead of that stranger
when a figure emerges from the hole
in the wall along the river.

However, her husband came home without notice.

When the rifle is remodeled into a vacuum cleaner,
the young woman hides in the toilet
in a hurry and quietly urinates.

The tired husband divides into the house.

When he opens the door of the wardrobe,
somehow there is a salesman in underwear.

Not only is the man hiding,
he is sweaty and sweet ramen soup.

“Well, you. Well, it’s hot here, is not it?”

He is the Lord here, letting his eyes float in the air,
he starts to think obnoxiously.
 


【 ライフル銃 】

細長い沼のように見える川が流れ 
その土手に沿って壁がめぐらされている。

壁は一部爆破され 
無残な裂け目ができている。

そこから顔を突き出すと 
草原の疑似地平線を背景として 
墓石のように立ち並ぶ団地の群が見える。

これら団地には不特定多数の住民が寄生し 
とりとめのない日常生活が営まれている。

ある専業主婦たる妖艶なる若妻は 
おそらく違法であろうライフル銃を所持し 
雀やカラスを撃つのに飽き飽きしている。

そのため彼女は 
川沿いの壁の穴から人影が現われるや 
その見知らぬ他人の額に照準を合わせる。

ところが、予告なく夫が帰宅した。

ライフル銃を電気掃除機に改造すると 
若妻は急いでトイレに隠れ 
ひっそり静かに用を足す。

疲れた夫が家に分け入る。

夫が洋服ダンスの扉を開けると 
なぜか中に下着姿のセールスマンがいる。

男は単に隠れているばかりでなく 
汗まみれでラーメンの汁さえすすっている。

「いやあ、ご主人。
 まったく、ここは暑いですねえ」

ご主人たる夫は目を宙に浮かせ 
ぼんやり考え事を始める。
