The Travels of Cocoa Poem Lorry

Authored by Corey Mesler

Cockahoop, Xianggang, February 4th
We were greeted by the denizens with a parade and small gifts. I received a microscopic elephant carved neatly from an actual tusk. My guide, Actaeon, was given a timepiece showing earthly hours alongside those of heaven. Spent a peaceful day eating the local specialty they call Mast. It tasted of ashes and overly fermented mead. That night we opted to sleep under the stars as the local inn seemed to be full of Jacklighters. We slept well under wheeling Orion, the night air as cool as a young head of lettuce.
