Not one for poets laureate, me, but occasionally they hit things out of the ballpark.
Not that I'm one for baseball metaphors either. Musing in my morning float, I was wondering how best to render kimoi in English. It's a truncated 'kimochi warui- the feeling is bad- but you can't say 'it gives me a bad feeling' because I've been assured that 'I have a bad feeling about this' and its variants are now, in the cultural zeitgeist, copyright in perpetuity by George Lucas. And as far as I have a handle on kimoi, it seems to take in both yucky and unheimlich. But I haven't read much colloquial Japanese in years.
