You remember how it feels like after being intoxicated in its smoke: The coldness of your skin permeating through your bones; the slowness of your vision as your eyes desperately tries to focus itself on an object; the barely audible voices of those around you. Slurred, and yet fairly recognizable, they spoke of you being "sabog" in your joint. Everything around you grinds to a halt, and you, being enslaved to some unfamiliar euphoric sensations encase yourself in an invisible box. Impregnable, and yet, nearly addictive, the feeling is almost like being drawn to a dark and foreboding world where the only way out is through the passage of sleep.

It was past midnight of last year. You sat in a table with two of your closest friends. The captain pulled out a cellophane bag she got out of nowhere. You recognized its contents as something dark and shredded. Its moss-like texture assured you that its organic. She pinched a few shreds of the substance and sprinkled it over a flimsy paper. Rolling the paper, you have this idea that it will be smoked.

The stick was lighted and then passed from mouth to mouth. Shots were given and you swallowed the smoke with one gulp. Within minutes, you can already feel its effects. Everything appears veeerrrry, veeeeeerry sloooooowww, while those around you busied themselves with anything that would hold their self-awareness. Your breathe becomes shallow. Unaware of where you hand lands, you gobble anything that remains of your pulutan. The captain flirted with the girl who was flirting your friend over his phone. While you being left with nothing else to trip and nothing else to stuff in your mouth decides to go home and call it a night.
