We are forever…
We endured the bite of the flagellum,
And survived the blade of the guillotine.

Nothing demands your endurance like a pit toilet,you have to hold on to get relieved. To avoid an excrement splash plunge,you have to hold on tightly to the walls so you don’t cave in with the equally dilapidated seat. While keeping your ears trained as antennas ,for privacy is never guaranteed .
You have to be physically fit for a pit toilet,in there you half crouch and half sit.
You have to be prepared to endure the smell of mixed,soupy faeces…clogging your nostrils; making your stomach churn with rippling nausea. The tickling agitation of thick ,green flies using your skin as egg dumpsites or…mating platforms.You can’t even breathe through your mouth for the fear of what you might swallow .
In a pit toilet. You never get completely relieved. You rush in there to get rid of a stomach bug, and come out a host of an even more lethal bacteria.
Broody Hen [A Narrative]
My imaginary friend says : “Hi”
His name is Anxiety
When you see me fidget,it is because he tickles me. ©
“How they planned to keep that leaking relationship afloat beats me!”
With her guttural , resounding voice she begins .
In between long tokes of tobacco.
“Now that its submerging,they’re using the children as oars to row away on their single boats in spite of each other.”
Since you left,
my tummy has been a tomb for carcasses of butterflies …. ©
Comfort. The golden word…
Held with glass hands and uttered with unshakeable resolve. We are told it is an invisible sanctuary,that we should seek it. But when we’ve found it,we are encouraged to leave it… For it suffocates growth. ©
