Scared
sad
Feeling much emotion
Big Thing up, suddenly down
Big Thing down in pieces
Loud noise
jump, scared
Monkey-brothers under Big Thing
Monkey-brothers don’t come out
waiting, watching
No monkey-brothers
Perhaps brothers have gone the the Great Temple
Sad, nervous
Perhaps another Big Thing will go down
What then?
Scary thoughts.

Take comfort in brothers
fur
warmth
baby
family

Prequels

Sequels

  • from Insert Pen Name Here :

    I thought of the Big Thing as a temple, as I was imagining the mokeys being some of those that live in India in cities that people feed and stuff.
