Duos #7- Hana Pera Aoake and Mya Morrison Middleton published 17/04/2018

This guy told me that kicking all the sex workers off of K road was a good idea. He said K road had nothing to offer except crime and sex. He smelt like stale whiskey, mothballs and nervous sweat. He said the TPPA was a good idea. “The People’s Pharmacy of Aotearoa.” capitalism and mental illness. I don’t understand how you can’t think about how expensive my medication is going to be.

You see yellow snakes in the water.

But it was, she says. Look around you.
You know what to do.
