Here’s a dream from January 19th, 2005:
(It was my grandfather’s birthday)
I’m rummaging in my abandoned shack
for liquor bottles, pernod, chartreuese, whatever’s left.
I fill the cart with neccesaries and head down Holly St.
balancing my sword over the rim, cars speeding past me.
I take a shortcut through a dim and sleekly elegant yakuza lounge
where thick thugs and slim, savage chieftains gamble and flirt
with furious geisha who totter after me and my rattling cart, tut-tutting.
My sword’s cheap thai steel has become of the brightest damascus,
polished like a mirror- a masterpiece transformed from pretty junk.
But I’ve gone mad, and spit on the steps as I leave
this dangerous shortcut hearing the painted women
mutter like cherry branches in a violent storm.
Eventually they trail me and take my cart and sword away
and wrap me in soft blankets and take me to my room
which is sky blue, sea blue, with robin’s egg blue glass
windows through which I can spy a rippled beach.
Oh what peace I find within.
And then I miss Mardi Gras because I can’t get down
the stairs in my costume which sadly, isn’t all that different
from what I wore last year and I miss the best part
and everyone tells me how fantastic it was.
I dream about smoking “just one”
which is sometimes divinely satisfying
and sometimes horribly unpleasant
and always I shake myself awake in a panic.
どんな左2005.I’m 1 月19 日、アルコール飲料のびんの私の断念されたshack 、
chartreuese pernod で買物をする。私はneccesaries でカートを満たし、縁、
St. の下で先頭に立つ。私は厚い刺客私の後でよろめくおよびtut-tutting
flirt ヤクザの薄暗く、なめらかに優雅なラウンジを通して近道を。
And をそして私見つけるかオハイオ州は私が時々神に満足し、
1 つ” を煙らすことについてのwas.I の夢別の私が私逃す最もよい部分を逃し、
常に”ちょうど1 つ” を煙らすことについてのwas.
I の夢最もよい部分を去年身に着けていた皆が私に逃すか別の私が言うものをと悲しげに、
And sort of translated out, by a sort of robot:
What kind of left 2005.
I’m January 19th, the alcoholic drinks
it is to extend it shops with shack
and chartreuese pernod where I am given up.
I fill up the cart with neccesaries,
the edge, pass me and under St. of ヒイラギ
which takes the balance of the onboard my sword
which promotes take the lead.
I wobble after thick assassin me
and tut-tutting my and others
and others the cart which sounds you take,
to be thin, the geisha and the betting and the flirt yak
where the savage chieftain is violent be dim,
smoothly through the elegant lounge the shortcut.
The steel iron of the tie where my sword is cheap
polished like the mirror which it makes it
become deformed from the junk
where the masterpiece is clean the brightest Damascus, it became.
But as for me as for the woman who was painted
like the branch of the extreme stormy cherry
when the shortcut where I who inquire
about ぶ anther thing me am dangerous is left,
it goes to the lunatic simultaneously,
spits with step.
After all, those drag me, take my cart and the sword,
the package, and the sky blue of the soft blanket,
blue of the sea
where the glass window
where the egg of the robin
which can investigate the beach
where I can billow is blue
has been attached, keep accompanying in my room which is.
What kind of peaceful I and personal opinion attach within.
And as for me I am satisfied with occasionally with God,
occasionally to be fearful how it shakes me by the eye
has awakened in unpleasant my panic, the dream of was.
I always either one is splendid concerning
“exactly the smoke and others doing one”
everyone who attaches the best part to last year’s body
lets escape to me or, those which another I say heavyheartedly,
being not to be possible,
to obtain under the stairway of my design
which is not that everything it lets escape
thanking/apologizing meat festival.
