Aik dukaan mein aik larka salesman se jhagarti khwateen se nazrein bacha k doosri taraf moo kar k apni shalwar ka naara kasnay k liye qameez ka pallu uthata hai! Moqay ki nazakat ko na samajhtay huay uska dost phone pe kisi larki se baaton k dauran bekhayal se andaz mein uska naara khench deta hai jis ki waja se uski shalwar palak jhapakte he takhno k pass ja k girr jati hai. “Bhench…!” Khwateen linen k suit ka kapra mehsoos kartay huay peechay murr k dekhti hain aur jhuk k shalwar uthatay larkay k khaddar jese khurdaray aur siah chootron ko dekh kar aik wehshat bhari “haww” un k moo se nikalti hai. “Wo yellow wala dikhaen black dots wala!”
Lying down under the shade of that tree in the park, she for some reason couldn’t think of anything except for just letting her eyes translate the view to her brain. She felt a pleasant pulse running through her body. Everything seemed to be so meaningful yet meaningless at the same time. She smiled at herself approving her ability to perceive and comprehend paradoxes, beauty and philosophy. She felt that her senses had enhanced and she could hear children playing far away. She could see the milky way.Suddenly she felt a severe pain in the left side of her waist and it was so sharp that she twisted into the fetal position. Right when a tear appeared on the edge of her eye, she let go the fart her bowels had been holding. Although the wind was blowing away she could still smell it; hence enhanced senses.
On a dark screen there was nothing but utter blackness. The giraffe, who just thought that he was one, tried to stamp his hoof playfully but didn’t know whether he was successful or not because it was so dark. He then ran but that too was uncertain as he was not sure whether there was ground under his feet or not. He started chewing on, what he felt like were, leaves, which brushed against his nose while his perceived running. He couldn’t tell, if asked of course, what actually he was doing. “Damn the darkness”, he maybe could have said but we cannot know for certain as he himself wasn’t sure. Then suddenly there was a sound (maybe) and before the light could reach him, he was dead for sure.
