song for tomorrow


A trans-discursive,


mutual understanding with you


That’s what I want


But they dismiss it as “emotion,”


while their only way is to get themselves wet


Such idiots


“Even if you pretend to be hurt,


if your standing up again is real,


that’s great”


“If you can’t feel any respect for me,


I’m OK with you leaving”



To be selected out of many,


you must follow certain tips


“I said ‘it’s alright,’ and held you tight,


but why are you still ignoring me?”



If you can‘t take it, just flee from me


Hearing you say so,


I only feel I should love you more deeply


That’s so mean!


Touch, touch, touch


Void, void, void



It’s like while your heart rejects the conservative,


you end up finding yourself right there


“Having killed the father,


I slept with the mother”



“Arguably, it’s just the beginning”



“Having killed the sister,


I slept with the brother”




Even altogether, those books lined on the shelf before you


can’t match what I’ll show you now
