part of a rice field—
in an intimate corner
two women undress
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
the naked women
in one patch of the rice field—
unsatisfied thirst
 
~~ ~~ ~~
 
jagged rice stubble—
no place for their lovemaking
in the harvest field

Neither dew nor frost
slakes a weary pilgrim’s thirst
in the desert way.
