第一话 / Giant Monster / 庞然巨兽・东京

October 6, 2016

 

The first time I got on a subway in Tokyo, the feeling of pressure was all around me.

Men in black suits with deadpan faces filled the whole space, then flooded into the street like black blood. Tokyo, like a ravening monster, was sternly cool and unmoved, 

and I found myself in teas among the crowds.

 

Eventually I became comfortable living with the monster, even enjoying the distance

that comes of outward politeness and internal alienation.

I have lived in Tokyo now for 10 years.

 

During the day, the city is full of ladies dressed up in minks and diamonds, models with 

brand-name clothing, housewives who just delivered the lunch-box to their kids and then rush to meet their lovers in a hotel. Also, the homeless huddling inside their box, trying to stay warm. All sorts of characters, outwardly we look free, but in reality, 

we are just puppets, manipulated by the social system.

 

When darkness falls, Tokyo can’ t wait to tear off its mask, and the air is scented with smell of lust. 5 am in Shibuya, men hunt their prey on the street,

while women walk by in their heels, acting coy, slowing down to fade into their view.

 

The day is dawning, the subway is about to run,

let’ s unlearn our camouflage and suppression and dissipate our souls,

because we are all just empty shells driven by society anyway.

 

Because, this is Tokyo.

 

 

第一次站在东京拥挤的地铁中时,便是扑面而来的压迫感。

西装笔挺面无表情的上班族们挤满了每一寸空地,西装的黑色像血液一般,沿着街道组成的动脉流动起来。东京,这只巨兽耸立在我面前,张牙舞爪的展示着它的庞大和冷漠,还是个孩子的我竟鬼使神差的哭了起来。

 

然而当我也成为一滴血液被融入这只巨兽,习惯于人与人之间表面的彬彬有礼和内在的无限疏离时,我才发现自己已经在这里居住了十年之久。

 

白天,看着那些活在皮草里的贵妇和裹着毛靴的王子公主,徘徊在名牌服饰中的模特明星,给孩子送完午饭就急着去酒店和情人幽会的主妇们,以及躲在纸箱里取暖的流浪汉。

形形色色,看似自由,其实都只是被这个社会的运行规则牵引着行动而已。

 

夜幕降临后的东京却迫不及待的撕掉了自己的外皮,空气里充满着情色的味道。

凌晨5 点的涉谷,男人们端着酒杯四下搜寻着猎物,面带矜持的女人们嗒嗒的踩着高跟鞋,却不易察觉的在男人的视线中放慢着脚步。

 

天快亮了,电车快开动了,让我们抛却白昼里相互的距离去拥抱热吻做爱吧, 扔掉身上的伪装和压抑让灵魂都放荡起来吧,

反正我们都不过只是被社会操控的一具空壳而已。

 

因为, 这里是东京。
