Oh, No There Goes Tokyo

Last summer I started noticing toy horses tied to rings on the curb, all over the city. And the installation grew! After a few months other people started adding little riders to the horses, little pieces of astro-turf and tiny pieces of food! One night while sitting outside at the Sapphire Hotel we noticed their toy horse had been smashed. So we went home and got one of our own, and replaced it. Visiting our horse became a ritual, until unfortunately (tragically, really) it too was crushed by a witless driver.
More than horses are being tethered on the street these days, evidently. I spotted Godzilla standing guard the other day.
