My Beautiful Dog

The light of my life, my unwaveringly wondrous canine companion.

‘The Wading’

I watched you from the shore, some time ago Before the salt winds came and swept my head. The waves lapped up our memories, to and fro. The rhythms syncopate into a flow And darkness stirs dream visions I’ve misread. I watched you from the shore, some time ago. Dry screeching echoes of a dying […]

A Squirrel Story

An idea that emerged after a friend and I had a stupid conversation about how terrible it would be to have human’s mind but be a squirrel. ‘The Squirrel That Knew’ In a modern era of bustling streets and sprawling cities, there lived a squirrel who by mysterious divine means, woke up one morning to be […]

Bedtime Stories

Every once in a while Robin and I babysit a six year old girl. She doesn’t fall asleep unless we tell her bedtime stories, and since neither of us know children’s tales off the bat, we make some up. Recently she requested a story about toilets. This is the result. ‘Kevin the Toilet’ Once upon a time […]

How to Lose 10 Kg with Typhoid Fever

I have horribly unrefined taste. That can be a good thing when it comes to being adventurous and trying new foods, since it’s a rare occasion when I come across something I don’t like, or would mind eating. I’ve tried beef testicles, chicken feet, tripe, tongue, you name it. Though most would say that not being picky is a […]

Why I Buy Books

It’s not the most frugal habit and most people ask, “why not just borrow from the library?” I can understand why. Books add up pretty quickly but they’re still the one thing I insist on buying and never borrowing. Why? Well I write in them and only jerks deface library property. At the end of […]
