Andre-Johnson fiction – They’ll Steal Your Eyes, They’ll Steal Your Teeth

Everybody knew who stole eyes. They talked about it at the bar. They talked about it while playing rummy. They teased small, fussy children with it when they saw vazaha walking by. Watch out, they whispered to the crying child. Be quiet. Be quiet or the vazaha will come steal you. They’ll take your eyes. They’ll take your teeth. They’ll take all your organs. They’ll sell you abroad for lots of money. Everybody knows what vazaha do. They remember the father and son who disappeared. They remember the 15-year-old girl with the vazaha lover who never came home. Everybody knows that vazaha take eyes. They take teeth. They take what they want. They can afford it. They can afford papers. They can afford bribes. People talk, but talk has no value. Talk can’t buy papers. Talk can’t bribe gendarmes. Talk just talks. People just talk until they tire and stop.
