Japan Earthquake: Six Months Later — Alan Taylor – In Focus / The Atlantic

In this photo taken Friday, Aug. 19, 2011, Naoto Matsumura calls on cows in Tomioka town, Fukushima, northeastern Japan. Later, Matsumura, who routinely drives around the town to feed wandering animals, said he forgot to bring food for them. Nearly six months after Japan’s catastrophic earthquake and tsunami, the 53-year-old believes he is the only inhabitant left in this town sandwiched between the doomed Fukushima Dai-ichi nuclear power station to the north and another sprawling nuclear plant to the south.

口中に一粒の葡萄を潰したりすなはちわが目ふと暗きかも

I crush a grape

inside my mouth

that is when my eyes

become dark
