I like to think of the prompt as very fitting for today's ordeal.

gushhhhhhughhhhsshhhh
is the sound of stomach contents hitting the drain
and the constant uneasiness of when 
the next overthrow will come
a lurCH
go, go quickly!
a grateful hand leading 
quick breaths and glazed, darting eyes

one left, one right
rubbing and tapping and reassuring
another smearing drops of bak fa yau 
from the minibus man
under my nose. haha.

a kind, kind stranger
seeing me kneel
offered me more bak fa yau
one of Hong Kongers’ must-haves
told me to slather it on my belly
advice
she stayed until...success
another round of vomit
non-stop m goi saai lei

a pack of chewing gum even!
umbrellas accompanying the fallen in the rain
patience. must have been hours of nothing
buying plastic bags
slipping in tissues in my backpack
and carrying it in my place

even in my dimmed consciousness
these actions, these words did not go unnoticed

it’s moments of humanity like these that make people 
shine
and their heart glow with tenderness

forget about earlier
my impressions were misconceptions

a friend said
the party begins when the puking begins
and when the party’s over
you’re left with debt
to the ones that held you when you were weak
Day 23 of #escapril. Prompt: "when the party's over".
