ana tomy x Marcos Kueh’s FNF cover story
Cover 1: Puteri Rafflesia Exotica
Royal nectar hard to despise,
beautiful culture only for your eyes.
Stinky habits, hard to exorcise,
under the gaze of tourists, just as advertised.
making ourselves small,
a primitive high.
That my friend is the story I stylize,
the exotic art of blooming for flies.
Cover 2: Burung Melodie Rezeki
make sure you know this rule before you mature.
When the forest speak, listen up and stop critic,
from the squeaks to the shrieks,
maybe they’re telling me to fast for two weeks?
from afar they still preach,
an indigenous form of complicated speech.
But really there is so much to teach,
past knowledge, can we still try to reach?
