and a paper foot around his neck

August 4, 2006

outside mr. kobayashi's apartment
the crickets are screaming
the crickets are screaming

mr. kobayashi goes inside
mr. kobayashi locks the door

outside mr. kobayashi's apartment
the crickets are screaming
the crickets are screaming

so mr. kobayashi says
to mr. takagodo
outside of mr. kobayashi's apartment

make them stop
and the crickets stop
for a moment

mr. kobayashi takes a cold beer
from the fridge
smiling mysteriously
