The large canvas that is Dignity

She’s awfully cranky lately – Probably not getting any

What a prude – probably inexperienced

Yoh, hond, word on the street is she sure gets around – los

Eh, I’ve seen umjita in action, sure gets around – boss

She called me over for movies – dawg, you know what that means??

He didn’t even touch me – red flag, chommie, must be gay

I’m not interested – Dang he must have hurt you

Yes he did hurt me – Damaged goods, guy ruined it for the rest of us

NO! – Playing hard to get I see

Man she’s bitter! – must be divorced

Single mother, never the head, still the neck

Akani Fuko is here to offer an appreciation of the commotion we’re brought up in and the lessons it inevitably comes with. I reckon the hot mess that seems to persist in our lives may offer each one of us a unique take on life that only seeks to enrich our authentic selves. The gift of perceiving life through humour and constant reflection remains one my life’s truest forms of compensation, to say the least.
