How to Fall

There are plenty of reasons why one may choose to divulge in Kush. To forget. To remember. To forget what you have just remembered. To remember what you have just forgotten. To dare. To dream. To express oneself or to simply be. But mostly to forget, because we have to get rid of that which…

Infidels

She is the type who likes to take it slow. She wants to look at you first. Look at you in the eye, and into your soul. By looking back at her, you tell her that you are ready, ready to take her whole, not all in one bite, but slowly, so that she will…

Hiding in not so plain sight

  Fifi slowly closed the door of the closet behind her, as she watched the light disappear from the outside until, all that she could feel was the darkness and clothes all around her. She cuddled herself up, closed her eyes and covered her ears with her ears. This way, she could pretend that she…

Spoons

One, two, three, four One, two, three, four Five, six, seven eight Roba has set the tune, and the entire class is following.

A’ight

Height Is just another term for A'ight And it’s the height that makes everything A'ight I must jump now from this edge And stretch my hands like a bird Around the body of this chiq Tight As my mind elevates Elevation Such a bright light feeling in the mind Of one where Height is another…

One million views – Of Freedom

Abdi looked down all the time. Peeping at people once in a while to check if they had noticed him. The place was somehow stifled as people did not shout like they did in Nairobi, Business was quiet. It was about the afternoon and the sun was blazing. The lack of vegetation made it all…
