The following was an 8 minute section of Hijikata’s Nights For Four Seasons series.

Tower of heads

War of hair

Quarrel between teeth

Droppings

Insects

Anus

Skill of eyes

The lamp made out of scab Sunflower(s)

Butterfly

Crystal louse

The face of the audience – [is like a] Ghost

An opening in the forest

Build a prosperous country in a narrow sight on the floor, on the wall… everywhere

Split in an earthworm

Reflect on the surface of the water

The things recollected in the position of still wind

The land of mice

Shut your hands, legs, ears…

Nest

Moving forest, Fossil forest

An opening in the forest
