Excerpt from the cover of Bidoun Magazine #25
"In July 2010, i dreamed that i was flying

There was a sinkhole in the center of Tahrir
Square that the water was rushing into.
And i was afraid of flying too close to it.

was rushing over the cliff, creating this
kind of waterfall, into this tiny cave. And inside
there was a ten-foot-tall military man, like
twice the size of regular person, sitting in
a chair, and i spent all night just chewing
on his ankles, punching him - he was like
a clown doll, made of rubber, but he was
taunting me, i could hear his voice inside"...
