daily tanka — June 8

a bureaucrat again: 	same 
tan desks                         photocopiers 
papers like egrets stalking
long charcoal corridors

And for music, here’s Haruomi Honsono with some 1980s ambient shopping music Hana ni Mizu (trs: Watering a Flower) which he wrote for Japanese retailer MUJI (YouTubers here’s the original cassette version). For those interested, here’s a radio documentary on avant garde ambient music in 1980s Japan.
