2 Poems by Yuu Ikeda



september ugliness


they hold guns in their hands,

and pretend to love flowers.

they hide loudspeakers in their mouths,

and pretend to be silent.

they grow demons in their mind,

and pretend to be angels.

they close their eyes,

cover their ears with their hands,

then,

emit their malice.



december daydream


i want to be smoke that nobody cares about,

before i'm pierced by knives named malice.


it can float and go everywhere,

it can change shapes,

it can be invisible.


i want to be the bloody horizon,

before i get shot by bullets named ugliness.


it can just lie down,

it can just yawn purely,

it can be the one and only.
