Memories of many skies and earths beneath us - many days, many nights of stars.
I have spread my dreams beneath your feet. Tread softly because you tread on my dreams.
Beneath all of these addictions is this disease, this control disease which is the mark of our society.

beneath cherry blossoms.
Sometimes when you pick up your child you can feel the map of your own bones beneath your hands, or smell the scent of your skin in the nape of his neck.
