開かないパラシュート

I asked my husband to put new batteries in the kitchen clock. He had to stand on the piano stool to reach, so he pushed it over with his foot. I swear I'd seen him do it just that way before.

At the supermarket, I was trying to decide which cash register had the shortest line. Two middle-aged women in kimono walked past me. On said to the other, "He ruined himself." I wondered what she meant, so without thinking I looked around at her. And I swear I had seen someone in a kimono standing just in that spot before.

Near the the crosswalk outside the subway exit, people were collecting money. There had been an earthquake somewhere, maybe in the Middle East. An older man in a very nice suit started to argue with the people collecting money. I don't know what about. But he lost his temper and upset the collection box. I had the feeling I'd seen just the same scene before.

以下のストーリーは以前このブログに記載した気がしたのだけど、探してみたらまだ記載していなかったみたい。


もしどこかで既に記載しちゃったんだったらごめんね。


そして、英語だけで、ごめんね。

I was pretty sure that I'd posted the story below on this blog before, but when I searched for it, it appeared that I hadn't.


Sorry if I'm repeating myself here.


This is one I wrote several years ago.

たまにこういうのを転載しているが、昔の書き損じのストーリーの片鱗がハードディスクの中で見つかったため、一応ここに投稿する。

I do this from time to time, but I unearthed an old failed story fragment from my hard drive, so I'm just going to copy and paste it here.

無信号

耳鼻咽喉科の医院の待合室でビアトリクス近藤がファッション雑誌を、字を追わずに見ているところを、隣に座っているおばあさんらしき女性の方が声をかけて「あんた、どれぐらい待ってらっしゃる?私はもう一時間以上待っとるような気もしなくはないんです」と言ったら、ビアトリクスは返答した。「四分の三ほど縦に、幽霊が群がる荒野。」

In the waiting room of an ear, nose and throat specialist, Beatrix Kondo was looking into a fashion magazine (but not reading it) when the grandmotherly woman next to her leaned over and asked, "How long have you been here? I feel like I've been waiting for over an hour." Beatrix replied, "Three-quarters longwise, a wilderness of ghosts."

自由に感じろ

小規模の魅入り。柵のこちら側にはいくつかの不定者が漂い、柵の向こう側には無限の自由に楽しめる褐色の肉体のパラダイスだ。その誘惑によりみんな気が狂ってしまう。マカクのように吠えている。和らがざる性欲に呑まれてのたうち回る。

Droves of X are milling about on this side of the fence. On the other side of the fence are wide open fields of dusky flesh. The temptation drives everyone mad. Howling like macaques. Tumbling over one another in unquenchable lust.

Beatrix runs up against a gang of tough young philosophers. Wearing leather togas. One of them toying with Occam's switchblade. "You're on our turf," says the leader. "Let's get ad hominem on this bitch!"

it is one hundred years since our children left

台風が一番盛んになったとき、風速180kmにもなって雨粒が弾丸のように叩いてくるようになったとき、ビアトリクス近藤は部屋を出て道の真ん中までやっと歩く。彼女以外誰一人も外に出ていない。

When the typhoon reaches its peak, with 180 km/h winds and driving rain like bullets, Beatrix Kondo steps out of her apartment and struggles into the middle of the street. There is no one else outside.

夜空はライオンのように大きく欠伸をして、釘の雨は降り出す。ビアトリクス近藤はバラ線に巻いた細い腕を上げて身を守ろうとする。

The night sky yawns like a lion and it starts to rain nails. Beatrix Kondo raises her slender arms, wrapped in barbed wire, above her head and tries to shield herself.
