 Monobon by Lorelyn De la Cruz Arevalo



Cast a world wide net. Catch a mumbo jumbo of half-truths, half-lies and thingamajigs. Here's the catch: You're it! Married to 'A', the I is no longer mine. At least, the Z is far and free, and me, sleep deprived, could use a decent dose of snoozes. These midnight feedings on indiscriminate amount of news, fabricated or real time, about war, foxy or proxy whatever, games, showbiz, twitter, instagram, vlogging and whathaveyous have been frying what little remains of my sensibilities. Add to that concoction the perilous effects of sweets, caffeine and netflix. Do grey and white still matter these days? Myself is turning artificial. Methinks am no longer mine. What do you think? Who are you?

the wolf who cries man who wears the emperor's new clothes is a sheep
