Friday in Japan

Gym panted girls
Red rose tattoos on your shoulders
Playing a taiko drum game
In a seedy neighborhood department store
Must be Friday afternoon in Japan

White mini van
Tired dirty worker at the wheel
Blasting J-pop out at 100 decibels
Stopped at the redlight before the station
Must be Friday evening in Japan

Emotionless cop
Surveying the scene
Heavy stick in your hand
Manga in your back pocket
Must be Friday sundown in Japan

Dying coverall man
Phoning from Fukushima
To the CEO’s Tokyo office
Two men sweating on either end
Must be Friday night in Japan
