MERSTORY - updated daily | only on

I slice down, exposing slick gray innards
The hot stench fills our open-air kitchen.
And I stagger back towards the stone terrace.


Aqua snorts,
and picks up the machete to finish the job.
She's used to eating her prey raw
She has to make sawing motions down its belly
until the abdominal area just pops open
and internal organs plop down on the ground

Aqua stares down at the pile of entrails
and the empty cavity left behind.
She hunted live prey, but mainly fish.
Mammals were usually out of the menu.
Blood, warm blood on her hands.

Aqua joins me by the terrace.
