Back then she worked part time at a certain bar in Shinjuku,
but her real profession was that of female Japanese bondage master.
Her father had been a professional insect collector,
who would be commissioned to travel to remote parts of
the globe to obtain rare insects for other collectors,
but took his own life a number of years ago.
Then, after suffering an unfaithful husband and heavy debt,
she grew mentally unstable around the time of her father's death.
So she sent away her two beloved children,
to live in the hometown of her mother's family on Miyakojima – in springtime,
when the children moved up a grade in school, and in fall
for their yearly school sporting event.
Obaa, her grandmother, came from a millet farming family on Miyakojima.
The Children helped with the farm work, swam in the ocean,
and lived a carefree life.
The butterfly sought after by her father, whom she loved and
respected dearly, flitted between the earthly realm and fantasy.
