12: The Magic Elefants and The Monster.

The Magic Elefants and The Monster.
I scratch the pen’s blunt tip across the page of the small, brown notebook.
Spelling elephants with an ‘f’.
I can’t say why.
That’s a secret.
If I say why, that’s the game given up.
I give the game away if I say why.
Cambodia’s most important secret.
Somkhan cheang kay.
Most important.

This CIA level James Bond 007 state-of the-art subcutaneous self-charging nanotechnology hearing aid behind my left ear which they are using to spy on me, keep track of me and listen to every word I utter, from under my breath to screams and shouts, from prayers to Shakespearian soliloqueys, from fights with Razor to the music I listen to when I miss her…from crystal meth Christian ramblings to songs I write on long, tweaked out nights…from off-key covers of Bridge Over Troubled Water to Khmer versions of old classics, Nature Boy, Don’t Cry Daddy and Old MacDonald Had a Funny Farm…
And don’t forget When The Saints Go Marching In…
The first song that never ends…
The Never Ending Story.
How will this story end?
Let it begin:
Once upon a time there was a Kingdom full of Magic Elephants…

Follow my true story of my mission to Cambodia to combat sex trafficking…drugs, child abuse, drug dealers, police, gangsters, romance…and crystal meth…
