Wait for the signal to turn red.

When it does, quickly walk onto the zebra crossing and raise your hands towards the slowing traffic. Look authoritative.

And as the cars and scooters stop right in front of you, give them all one, final look of approval.

And walk away.

Walk into that stinky public loo. Head for the urinal.


While peeing, try to aim high. Literally, see how high you an go.

Alternative version:

Try to pee onto the paan stains.

Extra points if you manage to wash the stains away.


Kids go to school in the morning. All bundled up, with their parent/s standing with them at the bus stop.

Some of them have that look I have often seen in the eyes of goats. As they are slowly led towards the slaughterhouse.


I read another Saki the other night. Goddamit man. Now that is someone who has my respect. Reeeeeespect.

Someone suggested I read that Harukami chap. Sorry. The name intimidates me. Much like that other chap, what’s his name, Kundera?

Oh and “please revert”. Revert?? What the fuck does that mean.


Sounds like a river farting. Or a reverse vomit. Or a verb which did LSD.

Fuck. Words on drugs.

Now there is an idea.


Meet me for dinner

Meet me in the shadows

Meet my eyes and share my sadness

Meet me for lunch.

Served with curly fries.

    And Milan Kundera is brilliant!!! His new book of essays is enough to send me to the bookshop within the next hour. But I’m trying to fight being broke.
    Try ‘The Book of Laughter and Forgetting’.
