代数学的叙情詩

Dante Gabriel Rossetti
Dante Gabriel Rossetti

黒いマントをまとって黒い頭巾を被った死神が駅前でティッシュを配っている。血まみれの鎌を片手に持ちながら。

The angel of death, in his black cloak and cowl, is handing out packets of tissue in front of the station. His scythe is crusted with blood.


ビアトリクス近藤にもティッシュを強硬に勧めてくる。よろしくお願いしま~す、と。

He tries to push one on Beatrix Kondo as well. Very pushily, in fact.


しかしビアトリクスは外套の襟を立てて寒い風を防ぎながら素通りする。完全スルー。

But with the collar of her greatcoat turned up against the cold, she brushes past him. Never pays him a glance.


「忙しいわ。」と言わんばかりに。

"Don't bother me, I'm busy," is what her expression seems to say.


「やっぱり東京の人ってみんな忙しいな」と死神はつくづく思う。

"People in Tokyo sure are busy," thinks the angel of death.
