I begin the day with my head on a stake. Drink water for three hours and pretend to walk around the block. Cut off all my hair and move to Savannah with red wine and borrowed money. Make it big. Forget to shower. Move back to the apartment complex, where people fold laundry and let the day spill past them like a naked gaze. Stuff my insides with oats and honey. Pretend to fold laundry like everyone else. Cry after calling my parents. Cry hard enough on the hardwood floor that my knees clink together.

Streets Are Listening...God Is Watching: The Bermy Chick Chronicles
Still fatigued, I wake at first light. The television is running. Perhaps you were watching it. By my bed is an empty pallet. Did you tiptoe off to catch an auto rickshaw? Scrounge a dosai and some chai? On my screen the day is waking, accompanied by the credits of an early morning raga. As I float drowsily, a drone glissades into the room.

On the other side, my Nanna passes a market, buys a painting from a man with a severed left ear and hangs it in her dining room. Her go-to coffee order is a mocha and she is a frequent reader of horoscopes. It felt as if she had crossed a line but not really a step more like an inching: A universe of time to herself.

But in truth she was going nowhere. Content with seclusion and the yoga of eating tuna out of cans with her fingers, the open-mouthed chew, meditation on the three-day-old dishes fermenting on the sink. Unfettered until the inevitable return to civilisation: the office, management indecision and the reams of paperwork loading down her desk. The gossip duplicated in the photocopying section.

Las que spend hours cleaning The homes they wish to own one day. My mother was one, a time before I appeared. A life we would have continued if opportunity was not earned. I sat on that bus stop to take The next route to a future mis papas Dreamed for me. Those women remind me of a culture and people I refuse to forget. Respecting what they do Their sacrifice and ganas Goes noticed. Her millinery shop had windows bright With fascinators for madame whose face Needs artificial lace to help erase Ten years and homburgs for suburbanites Disguised as understated socialites.
