Tokyo 4#: Yakitori Alley

Futuristic skyscrapers and bright lights
The archetypal Tokyo
The face of many a travel guide and movie
To the uninitiated
The heady mix of neon and
Swarms of people
Is intoxicating
Less glitzy, tucked between the tracks
A collection of small eateries and bars
Hungry commuters and passers-by
Can fill-up on grilled skewers
In a run-down and cramped atmosphere
That evokes post-war Japan
