Cigarette Bitter Perfume (fiction)
Cigarette bitter perfume held my hand like a lost child. Mate, a strong uruguayan herbal tea
drunk from a calabash gourd sits at my desk to aid my thirst and keep me company.
Encircled by numbed and despondent colleagues as we penalised illegal parkers and
speeders for yet another day. The stale ambience of the station revived alight by a major
affair. The once mummified like staff now diverted their attention to the loudspeaker
instructing the forensic and homicide department to make their way to the city’s base
hospital immediately. Those summoned departed methodically ,whilst the others
