 Monobon by Jashley C. Laconico


Relief and Regrets 


Groceries at midnight. Flickering lights on grey aisles. A pack of Skyflakes. Twelve pieces of Biogesic. Black coffee sticks and apple juice. Crumpled hospital bill with a twenty pesos change. Two kilograms of rice form the mayor. Six pieces of blue Tramadol, finished in two days. Soothing balm for a ten seconds relief. Adult diaper with its previous receipt. Asking the staff if it’s refundable. 


My wrist is crying red tears.
