Children existing Ryoji Arai, 2012
Children in the past, children of the day, children from now on
Children of any time, children existing
Children close, children of voice, children in the distance
Children standing on the earth with big feet
Children striding over the Tokyo Sky Tree, children existing
Children with beard, children with lipstick on
Children standing feebly in fine leather shoes, children existing
Children made an invisible, evil big hand
Children scared of an invisible, enormous foot
Children yet existing
Children from way back, children still, children-to-be in the future
Children in an instant, children existing
Children existing and elastic, who live inside and outside of our daily life
