Norio Nishihara

A pink ransel reached me with nowhere to go.

I heard her voice saying ‘where am I?’

And I thought earnestly of how to make her wearable on my head.

And after a while, I thought of a green docking space, like a space station, to embrace her loneliness.

When the ransel became ‘one’ with the white piece surrounding her, my hope took shape.

And by putting this on, the piece will be further complete.

Please try this on, and embrace all of our affection.
