Avast ye! Here lie me ooooolde thoughts and those of other people. Ye might think of it as... a collective diary or perhaps a treasure chest buried deep in the sands beneath the olde waters of Davy Jones’ Locker. Read at yer own... risk, matey. Judge not the writing below without the acutest critical thinking, lest you plan on submitting your own fragment to my email account (which you can find on this website obvi). Argh!
Hot (Brown) Girl Summer by Nifath Karim. (@nifathkarim)
[[[Naomi’s note: February 17, 2020. Nifath is a writer and is also my friend. She sent this to me over the weekend. I composed a long, tumbling list of reasons why I like this work, but I’d like to highlight 1) its sense of humor which is as biting as it is patient and 2) its effortless structure. I frequently have a hard time stomaching narrative prose, because the thing that leads to the next feels contrived. Not the case here. Plz enjoy <3]]]
