I HAVE A DREAM

No not that kind of dream. An actual dream.We spend a third of our lives asleep.
We all know someone who says they will sleep when they die or sleep is for the weak. We are conditioned that sleep is a bad thing. A lazy thing. People take pride in being insomniacs and sleeping 4 hours every night. Weirdos.

MATATU CHRONICLE #2

13.08pm Uncomfortably sandwiched between the driver and a man who is coughing at 50 second intervals. TB ina tiba boss. This middle seat is particularly uncomfortable today, so much so that i bundle up a scarf into a “pillow” to support my neck. It’s the usual hustle and bustle today. Offload people at designated and…
