Easter eggs in autumn (a poem)

Inspired by the Shiina Ringo DVDs 賣笑エクスタシー [Baishou Ecstasy] and Electric Mole.

Cat ears
Cat’s eyes
Which pair shows the truth
of the disguise?

There’s a girl
in kimono
playing guitar at the Budokan
she might know

but don’t expect her to tell…

The lock won’t open
if you don’t know the code

Your chances
are one
in ten times ten times ten times ten times ten

and the mark is gone
so there goes your only clue

Thirteen years have passed
what does it matter now anyway?
