"I am an instrument in the shape
of a WOMAN trying to translate pulsations
into images
for the relief of the body
and the reconstruction of the mind."

katas ng baterya

i came across a very interesting taxi cab name: katas ng baterya.

i was in the jeep, on my way home, when i saw the name written on the passenger's side door. Katas ng Baterya.

what immediately came to my mind was what kind of "katas" came from batteries, and what batteries produce this katas. was it the car's battery? or a double A battery? or maybe it's battery, the beat-up-someone kind?

any katas ng baterya can be fatal, since who knew what kinds of chemical substances it contains. can it mutate a human? possibly. a car's battery would most probably produce a thick katas; whitish, translucent, gooey, sticky, and can shock anything that touches it. an energizer, on the other hand, would have a katas that's watery, bluish, and maybe tangy to the taste. i'm imagining too much.

as it was, i was also intrigued by what would happen if one did drink this katas.

i did not have to look further, since i found the skinny skeleton of a driver sitting in front, looking like he'd rather be someplace else other than driving that generic white taxi.

any ideas on what a katas ng baterya might be? ping me, comment me, or tag me. i'd really like to know.
