Yesterday I went to get braids. As the hairdresser greased my scalp and pulled my hair open, green strands started to appear in it. She pulled again and my black head became a green screen. A portal of fibres.
Walking home, images of far away islands and unknown bodies arose on the surface of the braids. A murky brown seaweed lapped at their shores.
