This morning…

…the couple in the narrow street near my office had restrung their hammock across the footpath from a large tree to a solid high block wall. The woman was awake and sitting cross legged on a mat on the ground. The man was still asleep and covered entirely with a thin blanket, no doubt to keep out the light and noise as much as the early morning chill.

Yesterday, this couple were both still asleep with their bodies intertwined in the hammock, his legs appearing in a strange and twisted fashion where hers ought to be, a strange and jumbled mix of tousled hair and limbs, oblivious to the early morning traffic.
