  2. 2-day old friend

    "Bike safe," as she let me go from a hug. I remembered laughing hard the day before as we guessed in our seats. "Are we in the room of those who passed?"

    The subject we were laughing about has been forgotten but I remembered asking myself, “how is it possible to laugh so hard with a stranger?”

    You find persons in a sea of strangers. Hold them tightly in your heart and cast them in your prose, the only way I know.

    One of my pursuits in this week out of office is to not use the headphones.

    What I have realized is how suddenly everything seems to be white noise
    how when a heart is at rest, the noise punctuates to make a full perfect sentence
    how I do not have to shut things out.

    How a lot of difference a mind at peace makes.

    Is it worth it

    "You don’t go out much do you?" asked a colleague. She soon realized how rude it sounded and apologized but could not rephrase the sentence any better.

    It is true.

    I have rejected their one too many friday evenings and wednesday ladies night out. Being a non-drinking muslim has been a great excuse.

    "I mean, what do i do right? Besides, I’m quite an introvert, so that is fine with me."

    I have rejected dinner nights too for boxing, tutoring the kid and a fictitious meet up in Narnia. They are mostly interns who leave the country in three months. Like all long distance relationships, it is hard and it might not last. What is in it for me, then?

    On other dinner nights, I bail out and set a new appointment with a friend. Meeting up with bosom friends might not bring boys/jobs to the yard but from my track record, it has always been worth it. Which made me realize, friendship is about effort. But it is those kind of efforts that gratifies. It is like walking 20 blocks away for ice-cream at the corner store because you have mad-ass cravings. But you always know it will be worth it.

    P.S. Also, I’m on leave this week and colleagues remind me of work too much.

    Rape is one of the most terrible crimes on earth. And it happens every few minutes. The problem with groups who deal with rape is that they try to educate women about how to defend themselves. What really needs to be done is teaching men not to rape. Go to the source and start there.

    Passed my bike test. One last lesson till I am legit for the road. Gonna spend the evening boxing dead butterflies away.

     
  9. It always amuses me how silent I can be. Clear my bladder and stay in my room all day. Come out at 7pm, surprised everyone. Dad came home at 2pm, I heard. Left at 3pm leaving behind an empty takeaway box It also intrigues me how easy it is to make space, to believe that you are alone.

    There are still demons
    That came to me when I was younger
    And never left
    They’ve dug their fingers
    Into my shoulders
    And refuse to let go.

    And sometimes,
    When I’m alone,
    They become my good friends.

    We need to
    stop
    teaching daughters
    to always be quiet
    and apologetic.
    They are instructed
    to walk on ice
    and carefully string words
    as they trip over thin tongues
    while our sons
    run rampant.
