perfectworry: if you tame me it will be as if the sun has come to shine in my life (forty four sunsets)

perfectworry: take back the city for yourself tonight and I'll take back the city for me (crystal splinters city skies)
title: Original Soundtracks 1 (or, A Save Tokyo City Story)
rating: PG
word count: 114
community: [livejournal.com profile] writerverse
prompt: Phase #10: Challenge #06: Weekly Quick Fic #02 (soundtracks for imagined films)
summary: a poem about Tokyo
notes: "私たちの大きな夢" means "our big dream," it's the name of a U2 song; "胸の鼓動を高める物ように" is from another U2 song, and it means "like a thing that makes [your] heart beat faster,"
and "胸の孤独を高める物ように" is a pun, because "鼓動" (loosely, the "beat" in "heartbeat") and "孤独" ("loneliness or isolation") are pronounced the same way. "友&愛" means "friendship and love," and would be pronounced the same as "you and I."

a profane capitalism of rioutous sounds )
