Drip...

Is it the rain?

No, it is not.

Is it the tap? Or is it the leave? …maybe it is the roof?

No, it is the tongue

The tongue?

Yes it's the tongue

Whose tongue?

The monster's tongue.

Drip…drip…

Saliva is dripping from the tongue

The monster's tongue

Is it… is it because it feels hot?

No, it is not

Is it because it is feeling playful, like a dog?

No, why, it is a monster after all

Then, is it because it is… hungry?

Yes, it is very hungry

Drip…drip…drip…

Saliva is raining from the tongue

A very hungry monster's tongue

Why is it hungry?

Is it because it has no food?

No, not really

Is it because it does not know how to cook?

No, monsters eat raw

Drip…drip…drip…drip…

Hey…

Yes?

Why can we hear the monster?

Have you not guessed that already?

Ar…are we going to die soon?

If we are lucky…
