nun’s eyes.

A nun on the tube looking at the advert with a half-naked girl in a pink promiscuous lingerie, then moving her eyes from a book about kama sutra to a teenager who is reading it. She glances at a kissing couple and a woman in a thin top without bra. What is she thinking about? How can she live peacefully in the world of perversion and nudity cult?

a soldier


I jumped into the tube carriage this morning and I saw a young man sitting in full US Army uniform, with a bag of coke sticking out of his backpack. He was like an alien as everyone was staring at him. It was difficult to guess his face expression. He didn’t seem to be happy but he wasn’t sad either. A proper stone face. Was he going to the airport to catch a flight to Iraq, after a long goodbye with his wife and a child? Now he is sitting on the tube surrounded by people that are going to their offices, carrying leather briefcases. Soon he will be surrounded by camouflage-patterned heroes. Is he going there with a hope or with fear in his eyes? Will he survive or sacrifice his life in order to win somebody’s war? One thought started rumbling in my head: perhaps he is on his way to the paintball field..?

After years of using a tube people still seem to be surprised when the train starts and they collapse like dominoes as they didn’t hold the railing..
