不人気だったこのおもちゃ。
先っぽだけ切って竿の先につけたら――
This toy was unpopular for Maru&Hana.
So I cut ahead of it and attached to a toy of the rod.

まるにヒット!

まる:「なんかよくわかんないけど、すっごいの捕まえましたよ。」
Maru:[I love this!]


まる:「ビロロロ~ン。」
Maru:[By the way, what is this???]

まるさん、掃除機をかけたいんですけど。
Hey Maru, I want to vacuum there.

まる:「どうぞお構いなく。」
Maru:[Please don’t bother.]

いつものことながら、どいてはくれませんよね。
Ok. I know that you do not intend to avoid it.

まる:「今忙しいので。」
Maru:[I am busy now.]


まるに近づくとハウスダストを検知するランプが点灯。
When the vacuum cleaner approaches Maru, the lamp to inform house dust turns on.

“Gravy”
Raymond Carver

No other word will do. For that’s what it was. Gravy.
Gravy, these past ten years.
Alive, sober, working, loving and
being loved by a good woman. Eleven years
ago he was told he had six months to live
at the rate he was going. And he was going
nowhere but down. So he changed his ways
somehow. He quit drinking! And the rest?
After that it was all gravy, every minute
of it, up to and including when he was told about,
well, some things that were breaking down and
building up inside his head. “Don’t weep for me,”
he said to his friends. “I’m a lucky man.
I’ve had ten years longer than I or anyone
expected. Pure gravy. And don’t forget it.”

今回ははな動画。
友情出演:まる
まる毛ボールは、はなが一番大好きで良く遊ぶのですが、
遊び疲れて食べ始めたら即回収。でもなかなか手ごわい。

It is Hana’s various videos this time.
Cameo appearance: Maru
The Maru’s fur ball is the toy which Hana loves most.
However, she is going to eat it when she plays, and she was tired.
I must take it away from her quickly then.

I bought this new toy with the cat brush.

Let’s play!

Heeeey…


まる&はな:「しーん。」
Maru&Hana:[No, thank you.]

ホームセンターで見つけた猫型ブラシ。
I found this new brush in the neighboring shop.

まる:「ふんふん、何ですかこれは?」
猫型ブラシ:「はじめまして、新入りでっす♪」
Maru:[What is this?]
Cat brush:[I am a new brush. Nice to meet you! ]

ブラッシングという言葉にやって来たものの、
いつものブラシではなかったので立ち去ろうとするまる。

まる:「そんやつは認めませんよ。」
猫型ブラシ:「がーん!」
Maru:[If it isn’t an usual brush, I don’t like that.]
Cat brush:[Omg…]

ブラッシングー、と声をかけるとどこにいても駆けつけてくるまる。まるにとってブラッシングの時間はそれほど大切なもの。ブラシへのこだわりも強く、気に入らないブラシだとすぐにどこかに行ってしまいます。

 

まあ、ちょっとお試しくださいよ。
Please try it!

まる:「こ、これは!!」
Maru:[Wow!!]


まる:「はい合格~。」
Maru:[I love the new brush!]

 


猫型ブラシ:「はじめまして、新入りでっす♪」
Cat brush:[I am a new brush. Nice to meet you!]

 


はな:「おしゃべりしてないでさっさと終わらせてちょーだい。」
Hana:[You don’t chatter, must end work quickly.]

はなはどんなブラシでも、必要最低限、さっさとが鉄則。


ちなみに、まるをブラッシングするともっさりヘアーの猫に。
This is Maru’s fur hair.


はなは毛にハリがあるので、ツンツンヘアー。
Hana’s fur hair.

毛質によって髪型が変わります。
By quality of fur of the cat, the hairstyle of the cat brush changes.

今度は箱の上に乗っているはな。
Hana gets on the box this time.


はな:「まーたなんか来た…。」
Hana:[He came over again…]


まる:「すべての箱は――」
はな:「あーはいはい!」
Maru:[Hey! All boxes――]
Hana:[Ok ok!]


まる:「まったくもう、油断も隙もありませんよ。」
Maru:[I cannot be careless.]

はなが立ち去った後もまだ不満げなまる。
Maru seems to be still dissatisfied.

まる:「めっ!」
Maru:[Mine!]


まる:「見張ってなくちゃ。」
Maru:[I must watch it here.]

箱に入りたいまると、どきたくないはな。
Maru wants to get into the box, but Hana does not want to go out of there.

まる:「いいな、いいな。」
はな:「あたしが先に使ってたもーん。」
Maru:[I am enviable.]
Hana:[I used this earlier.]

無言のプレッシャーを与えてもどいてくれないので、強引に頭を突っ込む。
She didn’t go out of there, so he poked in his head forcibly.

まる:「あー、この辺ちょっと臭いますよ。蒸れ過ぎじゃないですか? そろそろ出たほうがいいですよ。」
Maru:[It is stinking here. This seems too steamed. You should go out of here right now.]


はな:「うっさい!」ガブッ!
Hana:[No!]


まる:「もうこうなったら単刀直入に言います。その箱を明け渡すのです。今すぐ。直ちに。」
Maru:[I say frankly. Get out! Right now. Promptly.]


まる:「なぜならば、すべての箱はまるのもの、すなわちその箱もまるのも、とずっと前から決まっているのです。遺伝子レベルで。」
Maru:[Because all boxes are mine. Therefore, the box is mine, too.]


はな:「あーもう、ほんとうるさい。わけわかんない。」
Hana:[Too noisy! I cannot understand at all.]


まる:「あ、空いた。」
Maru:[This box became vacant.]


まる:「ラッキー♪」
Maru:[Lucky♪]

“We Lived Happily During the War”
Ilya Kaminsky

And when they bombed other people’s houses, we
protested
but not enough, we opposed them but not
enough. I was
in my bed, around my bed America
was falling: invisible house by invisible house by invisible house.
I took a chair outside and watched the sun.
In the sixth month
of a disastrous reign in the house of money
in the street of money in the city of money in the country of money,
our great country of money, we (forgive us)
lived happily during the war.

“Poem (I lived in the first century of world wars)”
Muriel Rukeyser

I lived in the first century of world wars.
Most mornings I would be more or less insane,
The newspapers would arrive with their careless stories,
The news would pour out of various devices
Interrupted by attempts to sell products to the unseen.
I would call my friends on other devices;
They would be more or less mad for similar reasons.
Slowly I would get to pen and paper,
Make my poems for others unseen and unborn.
In the day I would be reminded of those men and women,
Brave, setting up signals across vast distances,
Considering a nameless way of living, of almost unimagined values.
As the lights darkened, as the lights of night brightened,
We would try to imagine them, try to find each other,
To construct peace, to make love, to reconcile
Waking with sleeping, ourselves with each other,
Ourselves with ourselves. We would try by any means
To reach the limits of ourselves, to reach beyond ourselves,
To let go the means, to wake.
I lived in the first century of these wars.

魔がさしてその辺にあったTシャツを着せてみたら、
思いのほか似合ってしまった。
I gave in to temptation to dress Maru in the T-shirt.

まる:「何でも似合っちゃってごめんなさい。」
Maru:[Of course I match anything!]


サイズもぴったり。
The size is good.


哀愁漂う猫背。
There is pathos in the stoop.

はなさんも似合ってますよ!
Hey Hana, you look good with it, too!

はな:「嬉しくなーい。」
Hana:[I am not glad.]

“I look at the world”
Langston Hughes

I look at the world
From awakening eyes in a black face—
And this is what I see:
This fenced-off narrow space  
Assigned to me.
I look then at the silly walls
Through dark eyes in a dark face—
And this is what I know:
That all these walls oppression builds
Will have to go!
I look at my own body  
With eyes no longer blind—
And I see that my own hands can make
The world that’s in my mind.
Then let us hurry, comrades,
The road to find.

何度もチャレンジしてようやく人間用のハンモックに乗れたまる。
Maru challenged much, and he could get on the hammock for man finally.

まる:「諦めない心が大事なのです。」
Maru:[Mind not to give up is important.]


まる:「蒸れずに快適~♪」
Maru:[It isn’t steamed, so this is comfortable.]

少しくらい失敗しても諦めないのはチビの頃から変わらず。
Even if Maru fails, he doesn’t give up.

“The Failure of Navigation in the Valley"
Kazim Ali

To CD Wright

No body is fixed in position no one can be known

Still I am read by satellites my tendency extrapolated

In the mountains I have no GPS I don’t know where to go

There are those trees their leaves flicker like little jewels a whole bucketful

Darkness stares back are you even human anymore

I close the curtains at night not because I think others will see in

Turn left there but so I do not see the reflection that is pure dark

I am not afraid of anything oh is that so

Citizen bear do this place not belong to you

Unseen I wander through the thorny place of what I no that ain’t it

No fear can be knew can be none fuck how do you spell it

I held a heavy jade pendant in my hand once not in this valley in another

In the range of  limited human experience how many places are there really

I don’t even have to look at the earth anymore I just have to listen

Now that hillbilly whisper guides me which way to turn how far up the turn is

Drawling like moonshine we’re really off the grid now

Making wild prayers to the green dark which kind do you mean

Thank god we thought of  her recording this voice both kinds

“Twenty-One Love Poems [Poem II]”
Adrienne Rich

I wake up in your bed. I know I have been dreaming.
Much earlier, the alarm broke us from each other,
you’ve been at your desk for hours. I know what I dreamed:
our friend the poet comes into my room
where I’ve been writing for days,
drafts, carbons, poems are scattered everywhere,
and I want to show her one poem
which is the poem of my life. But I hesitate,
and wake. You’ve kissed my hair
to wake me. I dreamed you were a poem,
I say, a poem I wanted to show someone …
and I laugh and fall dreaming again
of the desire to show you to everyone I love,
to move openly together
in the pull of gravity, which is not simple,
which carries the feathered grass a long way down the upbreathing air.

“Senior Discount”
Ali Liebegott

I want to grow old with you.Old, old.

So old we pad through the supermarket
using the shopping cart as a cane that steadies us.

I’ll wait at register two in my green sweater
with threadbare elbows, smiling
because you’ve forgotten the bag of day-old pastries.

The cashier will tell me a joke about barbers as I wait.
He repeats the first line three times
but the only word I understand is barber.

Over the years we’ve caught inklings
of our shrinking frames and hunched spines.

You’re a little confused
looking for me at the wrong register with a bag
of almost-stale croissants clenched in your hand.

The first time I held your hand it felt enormous in my own.Sasquatch, I teased you, a million years ago.

Over here, I yell, but not in a mad way.

We’re laughing.
You have a bright yellow pin on your coat that says, Shalom!

Senior Discount, you say.
But the cashier already knows us.
We’re everyone’s favorite customers.
