Tell-A-Tale (Part 16): The Silence Of The Beans





Okayama, 2008.




Shiori was never a friend.
But I was slightly hungry.
And mostly curious.
So, I ate her.

I remember our hot bath.
She looked helpless.
Submission is such a delicious word.

Run? Hide?
Why?
These hands will be gentle.
Caressing with a lullaby.

Beautiful adornment.
That smooth touch of epidermis.
That ever slight friction.
Kimi no perfect tone.

I could have done it at the kaiten.
But it would have been less fun, wouldn't it?
I'm glad you came.
For my little game.

Hush now.
What you can't see scares you the most.
But the melodies of the blades will sooth you.
Twirl to the rhythm of the rotation.
Dance! Dance! Dance!
Don't scream, for it's painful to my ear, dear.

It’ll end soon, I promise.

Smooth.
Your blood never felt so fresh.
And silence was that sweet taste of you.



Arigato, my Shiori-chan.
You were oishi.



(Blended, boiled Edamame milk with syrup)

Aiyo, Makcik Limaurumput berhaiku... you also the same ah? With the kacang hijau also.

Coincidence? I think not...

P.S. Technically, yours just verse, not haiku, right. So I'm less adverse and simply lost and cuckoo... :P

yer.... why look like a vampire post de >.<"

fatboybakes said...

see la, the master at work....who else can give such an aura of mystery to the simple edamame!!! for some reason though, the silence of the beans kept make me thinking of flatulence in a big way!!!! all these big words, what's HAIKU ah? i know what's HAI, and KU la.... but those are two words, and in two different languages.

J2Kfm said...

blend them with syrup?!!!
how does it taste like?
imagine the pungent chlorophyll scent ... eurgh ...

sc said...

just hopped over from lemongrass and hey, another bean story! but your's are much darker though.. *shivers* hehehe

christine said...

making beanny looks so artistic..definetely need some in depth thinking to appreciate the words..haha

Live2Talk said...

Hmm delicious bean ... what were you thinking when you licked your lips in the end?

Jun said...

i bet ur guts ain't so silent after all that beans XD

wmw said...

??? Lost in the darkness....hahaha...

mimid3vils said...

The last photo with knife 1 look so scary lah....don frighten me ..cannot sleep at night lor :(

Nic (KHKL) said...

kenny, berhaiku?...haha, i like that word! actually, i dont know much about haikus. too deep for this me lar..hehehe....and yupe, mine's not haiku... ;D

coincidence? hmmm..... heheheh

ling239, HAHAHA! in conjunction with the 7th month mah...hehehe...it was a sudden decision to do edmamame one...hehehe...

fatboybakes, aiyoh, where got master-master one? i thought it'll be fun to inject a little horror into my mundane life. haha! what does silence of the beans got to do with farts ar? imagine hannibal lecter farting while being interviewed by clarice starling...hahaha! yeah, i know HAI. and KU as well. sounds better when they are joint hor? so the yin and yang...hehehe

j2kfm, oh, syrup here refers to sugar+water. sorta like tong sui. i thought of that chlorophyll scent as well. so, it's best to boil it after blending, to get rid of that greeny scent. apparently, it work! it tasted like green tea flavoured soy bean milk. not too bad, actually.

sc, hehehe, technically, yeah, mine's darker. was inspired by the 7th month, hannibal lecter and dark knight's joker. i must write a happier post d next time..haha!

christine, oh, dont worry about those words. some are very shiok-sendiri (self indulging) one. i'm gila-gila a bit..hehehe...but i did have a fun time shooting the beans though.. ;)

live2talk, hmmmm, interesting question? what was i thinking? hmmmmm....thinking of you lor ;)hehehe..seriously, i was relieved that the milk turned out to be rather nice. afterall, the beans cost be about RM8. better not waste, right? ;D

jun, hehehe...actually, i was expecting frequent visits to the jamban after the drink. but surprisingly, i was OK. the fibres weren't doing a good job. or perhaps my body produces an unknown enzyme....*whistling x-files tune*

wmw, oh, i was reading this book where they said that one is frightened when one cannot see what's ahead...or something liddat lar...so, i thought it'll be interesting to include that here...darkness can be fun something also, right? hehehe... ;D

mimi, you got a good sleep or not yesterday night? hehehe....i hope no nightmares... ;D and i thought a knife would be more interesting that a spoon mah...or even a fork ;D

Lyrical Lemongrass said...

Xiu Long Bao said...

ai wei said...
