Tokyo

I keep looking up at the signs so I won’t lose my balance among all the salarymen wearing black suits and white shirts and dark plain ties, all the salarywomen wearing black suits and white blouses and sheer tights, all carrying laptops and rushing home while I hobble along with my rollerbag, all under black or blue umbrellas while I take an involuntary shower, then I take another shower in a bathroom as long as my outstretched arms and wish I’d brought another pair of shoes

Welcome to City Writers Room…

A creative and literary journal for writers featuring stories from the city through a different lens; a place for writing about people, places and ideas hidden. City Writers Room is a space for writing about the city – the elements we approach, come up against, make our way through, dive into, savour, spit out, dance with, tiptoe around, laugh about, cry over, fall for, run away from… take with us.
