Nail Picture

I will give a white wrist to a renowned nail sculptor.

Thin and delicate fingers are swimming.

I wonder whose hair you were stroking.
Or have you hurt anyone’s back?

Hey, do not you feel nostalgic?

It seems there are marks of memorable rings.

Oh, I wonder if you forgot it.
Or maybe you pretended to forget.

Even this and that, the picture of nails disappears.

Here, can not a little tremble the tip of the sculpture sword?


【 爪の絵 】

高名なる爪彫師に白い手首を贈ります。

  細い華奢な指たちが泳いでいます。

    いったい誰の髪を撫でたのかしら。
     それとも誰の背中を傷つけたの。

       ほら、ひどく懐かしい気がしませんか。

思い出の指輪の跡が残っているみたい。

  あら、まさか忘れたのかしら。
   それとも、忘れたふりかしら。

     これもあれも、爪の絵だって消えるもの。

       ほら、彫刻刀の先が少し震えませんか。
