Not a 9-5

I need the nights of insomnia,

early morning scribbles accompanied.

Need me sleep till 12p.m.

flip-flops, tee-shirts, tank tops, jeans well worn,

Hung dresses haughty, unworn. Shirts un-owned

No stuffiness here. No formality, yes sir!

No four inch click-clacking. ankles strained.

Love me words, letters all day long,

making sense, making pretty…

Love fulfilment and wind in hair on bikes.



When I got back from Law School, I immediately returned to my job at 234NEXT, left there a couple of weeks ago for another media house. Everyone expects me to get a ‘Law job’, I can’t. Won’t.


Finger speak

Once said speech makes loco,

makes tongue tied like child’s shoelaces.

Easier to hide in the light

of this screen. Pecking words; strong

confident. No ‘erm’, ‘uhh’, ‘what I’m trying to say is’,

‘forget I said anything’…

Will try to pick out one thought or emotion everyday and write short lines about it. I haven’t been writing, haven’t been listening to myself… someone forced me to admit that recently… thank you.
