Subah Ho Gayi Mamu

I fell asleep reading in the living room last night. My head, facing the window, was propped on a folded pillow. My feet were perched on a rolled rug.

At some point in the night, my hair released itself from its rubberband sty, and went on a rampage.

I was woken up at six this morning by my aching neck. When I flung the keratin curtain off my face, I saw a red sun rising from between my toes.
