POWER

POWER There’s so much more I would do that I enjoy … if I were a boy. In my quiet hood full of the fullest big matured trees that turn the night sky navy, tree-lined streets quiet without a peep, and dim-lit verandas (with no one on them), I would walk for hours in flip […]

Sweet Poisons

Sweet Poisons What is that magic That finds itself amidst cupboards On evenings too tired to head to the grocer’s And yet you find something for supper?

REVIEW: “Moonlight” – THE GUIDING LIGHT OF HAND JOBS

THE GUIDING LIGHT OF HANDJOBS Interesting how we romanticize anomalies, which supports stereotypes. And win awards for it!

Kitchen

Kitchen Let’s be insecure in a kitchen somewhere washing our dishes the oldskool way Like, I’d be with the red checkered towelette slowly, slowly drying inside your favourite mug and you’d be asking: “But can you see yourself married to me…?” Let’s be insecure in the kitchen out there cutting vegetables slowly for emu stew […]
