倉​地​久​美​夫 [Kumio Kurachi] - 水​道​の​メ​ー​タ​ー​を​量​り​売​り​に​来​た [I Came To Measure Your Water Meter (WILD SPEED​)​]

from MITOHOS II by Deaf Touch Records



倉地久美夫 [福岡] - Fukuoka, Japan


Scary person is coming
on a black Celsior
He’s revving the engine
on Hikyaku* urushi courier

Today, a Wednesday, I’m going out around sundown
Act a shopper in front of the Aeon*
at the corner to the right on people’s street

Nobody to be seen
Could such a thing happen?
Many a thing has happened
but they came to sell water meter by measure
He glides down to sleep like this there are times agony wakes him

“Saga License Plate 8383, pull over to the left.”

 Teacher Onward is off on honeymoon
 All of our shoes are Moonstars* around here
 Looks good, Teacher, you’re dashing…

*Hikyaku: a courier company in Kamaukra and Edo period known for their relay system
*Aeon: a big-box store company
*Moonstar: a long-established sneaker manufacture in Fukuoka Prefecture
