KANJI
苦味を愉しみ
苦さの中に旨味を見出だす
普段は飲まないはずのモノも敢えて生のままで
この味は忘れない
苦いはずのコレが
今を著す
味で覚える喜びの感覚
ドリップでもトリップでも何でもいいや
ただただ溢れるものを溜めよう 流そう
明日には消えるかもしれない
明後日は勘違いかもしれない
それでも
味で覚えたこの感覚は忘れない
変わらない
普段は飲まないし
これからも好んでは飲まないエスプレッソ
口に運ぶも愉しく
無くなるも寂しく
けれど口に残った心は苦味から遠く
爽やかな香りを残してくれた
この喜びを遺してくれた
センチな気分も悪くない
それより楽しい音が聞こえるよ
眠れないのはソレか カフェインか
今はどちらでもいいや
さあカレーを食べよう

TRANSLATION
As I relish the bitter taste
I discover a delicious flavor within the bitterness.
A straight black of what I don’t normally drink
Is a flavor that I won’t forget.
What should have been nothing but acid to me
Comes into writing now.
A feeling of pleasure through taste.
I don’t care if it’s the drip or a trip.
Let’s simply store what’s spilling over and let it flow.
It might disappear by tomorrow.
I might think it was a misunderstanding the day after tomorrow.
Even so
I won’t forget this sensation that I’ve felt through taste.
It won’t change.
The expresso that I don’t normally drink,
And which I won’t drink even from now on out of liking,
Brings pleasure as it is brought to my lips
And leaves sadness when it disappears.
Yet the soul that it left in my mouth was a refreshing aroma
That was far from bitter.
It left me this joy.
The sentimental feeling isn’t so bad.
In fact, I can hear fun music in the background.
Is it because of that that I can’t sleep, or the caffeine?
At this point, it doesn’t matter which.
Now, let’s have curry.
