De lart de vivre lart

A laube, à lheure du premier appel des muezzins, il pleuvait encore. Jécris là-bas ces mots pour lami, le mentor, le camarade Goddy. Douleur sourde, de celles qui ne passent pas. Qui ne peuvent et ne doivent pas passer.</p>

A Day in the Life of Idi Amin

<p>The hot dry breeze is lazy. It glides languorously collecting odd bits of paper, they tease the ground, threaten to take flight, tease the ground.</p> <p>Every so often there is a gathering of force and a tiny tornado whips the paper into the air, swirls dust around, dogs lift their ears, tongues lolling, then burrow their faces between their forelegs as the wind collapses, exhausted.</p> <p>Children are in school, long lines of spittle reaching their desks as they try to keep awake</p>
