Streaming through the night

Gately on Nile
Jinja, Uganda
On the way to watch the Superbowl

Streaming through the night
On the back of a motor bike
Sunglasses on
Eyes wide open
Wind blowing
Surreal nostalgia down in the pit of the stomach
As friends and football wait at the end of the ride

Dark and cool Africa town
Pavement and pot holes
Like a silent soundtrack playing
To the wrong movie
You think
But it’s not

Just a different place to what you thought it was
Or maybe just a
Different side to the story you were living

Streaming through the night
Surreal and nostalgic light

This is now
This is home
For now

Right now this is home
