Today's poem

I, misreading queen, confess that I can't understand some parts in the book when reading even in Japanese. At other parts, I can understand easily in English. Japanese or English - which is better? No answer to me. Never mind. Someday the fog will go away. I respect both the poet and the translator.

From this book
- Poetry has continued to differ way too much from what people believe it to be. Yes, that must be it, and just now as I think this, a shelf in the bar tilts. -
