they hadn’t seen each other in a week. he lets him into the apartment and the rank ammonia smell of unflushed toilet hit him like an ulcer. it’s six past eight on a saturday morning. he is in gym clothes. he is in a onesie with a tail. he takes one look around the living room – freshly laundered clothes and bedding strewn all over the sofas, the window ledges, and on the wooden floor. he catches a whiff of his goaty body odor as he steps just inside the still open door. he looks to his left and sees the smeg refrigerator with the union jack design. he takes a step further, sees the central table and walks straight back out. his walk-outs are becoming frequent, he muses. he remembers that he did the same the last time they were together. he is busy taking selfies of the two of them reposing on the bed with his iphone 6s. both of them in boxer’s shorts. “can i see your other phone?” he gives it to him. he looks at the phone like home-made meal after a three-day flight. “you apple freaks. i was with my mother the other day and she was teasing her boyfriend. she was holding his phone and was trying to hint to him that she needed a new phone so she said ‘i’m saving to buy an iphone 5 when iphone 7 comes out.'” he laughs and hands him back his iphone 5. he says nothing but his mind is – the serengeti after a night of leo-feasting. the game guards need to seriously think of separating the lions from other endangered species. he gets off the bed, dresses in silence, and leaves the apartment – that was seven days ago. they hadn’t seen each other in a week. he lets him into the apartment and the rank ammonia smell of unflushed toilet hit him like an ulcer. it’s six past eight on a saturday morning. he is in gym clothes. he is in a onesie with a tail. he takes one look around the living room – freshly laundered clothes and bedding strewn all over the sofas, the window ledges, and on the wooden floor. his books have been moved away from the window ledges to avoid the damp clothes. he catches a whiff of his goaty body odor as he steps just inside the still open door. he looks to his left and sees the smeg refrigerator with the union jack design he gave him on his birthday – three weeks ago. he takes a step further, sees the central table and walked straight back out – on the central table top was a spread of silver coins, atm slips, and utility bills.
