Drowning in Mango - Part One

drowning in mango, I came up for one last gulp of sticky air

the world turned dark orange after that

the last thing I saw before my eyes stuck together finally: an enormous brown and yellow snake swimming towards me with great muscular movements

now blind, I felt myself being transported at great speed, but like a drunk on a train, half-asleep and conscious only of how sick all this movement was making me

I passed out, probably because my lungs were filling with mango juice

when I woke up, I was on the shore of a small stream

there wasn't a mango in sight
