Eventable

Over the past year, I have followed many artists from the events I have been privileged to be part of the audience. These connections led me to more artists which brought more events my way. Therefore, I did not live in gloom. Unnumbered, that way no one thinks I am favouring others, some of the…

Girl on The Train

The day you will meet the love of your life, you will be looking rugged, tired and all those scenes from movies of bookish humans bumping into each other and yada yada, you know the script, won’t be what will happen. Events will not freeze around you and the papers will not drop in slow…

Wanted

Of the things that irk me, being referred to as a millennial appears up above the list. It is next to men who have no business calling me pet names using terms like baby, honey or ksskss-ing me like an animal. Worse are those who call their mothers madhe but decide I am their “mummy”….

Up for Grabs

I feel cold. My hands are either incapable or have caught an attitude and refuse to layer the covers over my body to get warm. My head is placed on a pillow, the only soft landing my body is experiencing. My legs are folded at the knees with arms wrapping them like precious candy. There…
