Body Parts

 

  In her bamboo bedroom Auntie Mary tells me that

her preoccupation with death is so she can adjust

her mind to the next stage. She tells me that it's your

state of mind at the time of death that determines the

the next stage of your being.

  Even in her bamboo bedroom now she has a skull

and body parts, and a tiny tanned penis in a bottle,

preseved in alcohol, that she managed to smuggle

through customs.

  The skull is from one of the members of the Hill Tribes, 

" The prick has seen better days " She tries to joke to 

me. She boasts at night as she finishes her opium pipe

about her times with the Hill Tribes, and then dozes

and stares in the candlelight at the skull on her empty

floor, " You must be prepared for death Jasper " She

keeps telling me.
