3 Drops Into the Rain.

I was looking for a part time editor .Our first meeting was at a popular restaurant along Kenyatta Avenue. We met for breakfast. She looked completely hungover. She ignored the menu and ordered two Tuskers and two double shots of whiskey. She must have read my expression because she said, “It’s 1630hrs in Tokyo.” Then…

Ganbatte

Your first text came on a Tuesday morning. It read, “Nko Pandya Hospital admitted”. This was followed by two pics sent by you to show the serious condition you were in. I was taken aback. Whatever happened to you was grotesque. This type of shcok was way worse than a pregnancy scare. It didn’t come…

Nijūhachi

I just flipped the page that said I was two years shy off the third floor just the other day. I’d like to re-read the return policy. Kindly Sir, can you take it back? It seems this wasn’t what I signed up for. Any address perhaps that I’d return it to sender? And press rewind…

Waheguru.

You’d pass him for an ordinary gamer. He would normally prefer the Sikh logo in most of his skins and liveries. A rather quiet nice fellow I’d presume. He’s known around the gaming circles as Waheguru. An interesting choice of a pseudonym regarding his not close to an iota of being Indian. He walks around…

Predicaments

Have you ever felt like you putting effort and at times you think that it’s not worth it? And that you’d rather be comfortable and let the ship sink? Do you seem to get tired of all the hullabaloos that keep draining you physically, emotionally, and mentally? At times you’d tend to say, “ah, si…

Kami No go Kago

Three weeks ago I received a mail from an anonymous lady who had recently purchased my books. At first I thought it was perhaps about the feedback, the whiskey was flowing and I was in a nonchalant spirit. Plus the food from the kitchen smelled good. It was during those ungodly hours where my sleep…

Step Up.

Amwadeghu, I thought my heart beat for her cause she was the reason. I have been having bouts of insomnia. The loss of sleep is becoming too much. I look like a zombie from the age of Z. At times I hopes she comes back. It’s not that we have broken up but the drift…

Lonely

To Amwadeghu, It’s like I’m slowly killing myself. I’m trying so hard at the back of the shelf, it kind of seems the same everyday. I have been writing journals. Journals that will never see the light. I don’t know what is wrong or right anymore. I cannot state that I have a romantic life….

Substitute Teacher

Hey there. How has your day been? I hope it was as successful the way you wanted it. My name is Kazungu Kahindi, that does not mean much now, given I am new to you. However, Antony entrusted you to my care while he is away chasing dreams and the perfect bus pictures-he’s always had…

MV-JUVENNA: The Ship That Sunk.

“Chief, I thought I’d arrive late but I got to the diggz just on time. Three hours shy off the curfew hour. The only thing I will need right now is some Bourbon to calm my nerves. I feel sad that the ship sunk. There was no way whatsoever I would have saved it. The…
