A weird hum in my ears.
And insects chirping outside the window.
Occasionally, the sound of my cat meowing somewhere.
The silence of my mother sleeping in the next room.
The smell of mosquito coil
reminds me another summer is here.
I put on my earphones
and play the ‘Top 25 Most Played’ playlist
as I try to recharge my mobile phone online.
I casually punch in the number
the expiry date of my debit card.
When my debit card expires
seven years from now
How would my nights be like.
