Baby.

Join me, in weaving the African tapestry and adorning it with all the beads it could carry. Accompany me as I attempt to paint pictures with words. All the while making efforts to fall in love with deadlines

Hisstory.

As he began browsing through the farm with a huge stick he'd picked up, I couln't help but think; What if the snake wasn't real? Aren't those moments the worst? When you know well that you saw something but all evidence does is lie. (Like that time when you saw a stray text in his phone and you brought it up later during an argument. He denied vehemently of course, because by then, the evidence was languishing wherever deleted texts go to.)

JUNE.NINA.TEA

A slightly drunk man raises his rum filled glass and shouts,” Ameeeen, sister!” He is vehemently tapping his left foot under the wooden table. He turns towards the avowed streetwalker seated right next to him and says, " I tell you, show me an oppressed people and I will show you seeds of liberation...Hic!..  systems are supposed to protect their own. "

Another Story.

I am not a writer. I don’t even pride myself in being able to put two and two together when it comes to thinking of a story. Sometime back, I tried my hand in poetry to impress some lady whose tea I wanted to make every morning; with two tea bags like she loved it.

A Goat Called Hussein.

A male black goat which is tethered outside can't stop bleating. It bleats with so much passion. No one is sure whether it finds the environment new and strange or it just derives fun from bleating. It can't be hungry, we feed it well. In fact ,in turns. Someone scribbled a duty roster immediately it checked in.

HERCULES.

Crushes are amazing. Save from the fact that confusion is the ribbon on the package with which they come in. They are to be died for with the charm they emanate. How their strange eyes and mysterious smiles evoke obsessive thoughts. How they send you imagining what having kids with them would be like. The first thing you would want them to contribute to the genetic pool of course would be their nose. Because… have you seen your nose, Wekesa? Suffice it to say that you are a fan of breathing.
