Braids
By Eiks

In a small room, lost in my own world
Raucous laughter and smoke fill the living room
A call to prayer drifts from the nearby minarets
In a small room, lost in my own world

Shaping stories like moulding clay
A sharpened pencil on a notebook poised
Racing on the edge of the Milky Way
Kitten claws hook my braids

Spikey thistles bite when playing on dusty rocks
A clatter of plates and strangers crowd the dining room
White stone walls cool down
As the city lights begin to shimmer
In a small room, lost in my own world

Shaping stories like moulding clay
A sharpened pencil on a notebook poised
Racing on the edge of the Milky Way
Kitten claws hook my braids

In a small room, lost in my own world
