new market opportunity…

hovering
over
a hand painted sign
hawking
hostile oceanic items
hand whip stingray tails
guaranteed
to
vanquish
blood sucking vampires
thus
freeing
the land
from
such beastly pestilence
stood
the brown bag prophet
when
i
questioned
the
marketability
and
need
for
such items
the prophet
replied
that
the whips
were well received
in
the philippines
and
have had a strong demand
in
washington
these days
since
the price
was right
i
got one
and
several
premixed
spice packets

 

you needn’t listen to me but….

aswang
is
as real
as
humankind
indeed
humankind
may be
aswang
one merely
needs
to carefully examine
how
humans
treat each other
war
of
course
is the most
incestuous relationship
but
religious behaviors
have
also proven
to be
characteristic
of
aswang
and
those seeking
wealth
through
political stalking
have been
heard
making
the
ticking sound
so commonly
found
in the darkness
of
life’s forest
as well
along
well-lit
urban streets
you may
well
think me mad
as
i blend
these spices
for
my sting ray whip
but
we shall see
who
survives
this night
