First Love

 

The first great love of my life

was a boy with green hair

whom I saw in a movie of the same name.

 

He was the saddest boy in the world

on account of the green hair

he suffered and shed many tears.

 

But I thought – How beautiful it is

that green hair

And wanted it for myself.

 

Thus began a preference for

the melancholy and exotic lover

that’s caused me trouble all my life.
