Let your skin prickle with fear and be transported to the spectral abandoned ruins of Corregidor Island - a former U.S military HQ in the Philippines. The ghosts of the Second World War still breathe on this great rock that guards Manila Bay. They dwell in the shattered buildings and bunkers, and haunt the labyrinthine Malinta tunnels - scarred fragments of the heaviest conventional bombing of the Pacific conflict. Fears also persist of pythons that have grown to gargantuan mythical proportions after being left unmolested for decades, to feed on deer and monkeys.
This dark Gothic poem was composed on a rainy night in Corregidor, in a hotel room facing the entrance to the feared Malinta tunnels.
