buy for me
Written by Cathoel Jorss,

Young, scruffy, insouciant Indian boy is walking by the greasy canal with his parents. Evidently he’s been showing them Berlin. Lifting his shapeless hand in a vague gesture towards the old, carved terraces he says:

If I were ever rich –

the slight rush of his r’s making it clear he quite expects this to happen, doesn’t expect it to be all that difficult –

and they pass on, his parents well-heeled and looking rather bored as though Berlin in its filthy grey boilersuit does not impress them, barely glancing at the costly apartment houses he has chosen out for them to buy for him.
