The sky is actually purple tonight.

Sometimes it is a very nice thing, to sit by yourself at the roti prata store and drink hot milo with your legs resting on a red plastic chair as cars come and go. You watch people sit in their little circles and try to get something across to one another- small jokes for entertainment sake and faint smiles and knowing nods. We all strive in the dim glow of the sleepy night lights to hold on to each other and look into each other's eyes to see if we can get a spark, just enough illumination to fly off to some place else inside our heads.
