boy with lights in his mouth

Tonight I took a break from the writing to go to the Shuri Festival, in the streets around Shuri Castle in Naha. The streets were packed, and ear-splitting bangers were going off everywhere. Ducking into a car-park to find somewhere calm to sit down with our beers, we saw one of the best things I’ve seen for a long time: a small boy whose mouth was full of lights. He had taken the genius step of putting brightly-flashing, multi-coloured LEDs in his mouth and was sitting talking to his friends with a mouthful of light. Who would have imagined a mouthful of light would even be possible?
