About this submission
Not Waving but Drowning invites us into an intimate conversation between two strangers. Teni, who has just come off a night out with some friends is waiting for her bus, alone with her anxious thoughts. The stranger next to her notices she might not be ok and expresses concern. The two then engage in a back and forth full of light banter, meaningful discussion and to her surprise Teni ends up confiding in him and confronting buried feelings.
