There's a fire around "popo" of the tanpopo.

Nenten Tsubouchi



Where is the "popo" part of the tanpopo (dandelion)? Around the back of the head or buttocks? Is anything wrong happening somewhere in your body that you can't see? Anyway, it is joyful that there are people who are worried about you smiling like this. From a collection of haiku poems "Popo No Atari." He also composed "I don't know what happened to the popo after that" as a sequel.  By the way, “popo” means the buttocks in German slang.
