The Star by Kazuko Shiraishi

From Sea Land & Shadow


"Are you shy?" it asked
there is a knocking sound in the box
a breath and a breath communicate
the winter moon like a hazy moon on a spring night
ice hugged me tight
the mist got drunk and came to kiss me
I stayed still
it came to ask me again
"Are you shy?"
my eyes were heavy
and began to open toward a star
