Singing metal detectors

My throat is swollen, I sneeze all the time, and this morning when I awoke, bathed in sweat from a dream in which everything was out of focus, my throat was irritated.

My throat is swollen, I sneeze all the time, and this morning when I awoke, bathed in sweat from a dream in which everything was out of focus, my throat was irritated.
I think it's the gasses, the vapors that escape from the cars, the black clouds from the minibuses that have crept into my throat via my nose.
The metal detectors placed at the entrances to hotels and other terrorist-sensitive locations here always go off when the locals walk through. The inhabitants empty their pockets one more time, watches are taken off and keys handed over, but the machine keeps beeping all the same when the people of Cairo cross the threshold. There's a rumor going around that it's because of the high concentration of lead in the air here. If you just stay in Cairo long enough, you collect enough lead and iron in your body after a few years to make every known metal detector sing as you pass through.
