The Winged Molluscs of Tchoupitoulas Parish

They must be harvested while sleeping lest they turn you to stone.

They’re the last known speakers of a Yiddish-Creole patois.
They’re capable of summoning gator golems from the bayou.
They are also excellent with garlic and a dash of Worchester and Tabasco.

Hyper-violent crowd pleasers

What made these stolid lads in simple suits a mad sensation?

The hypnotic whirl of their night sticks?

Their easy aplomb in dispatching the crowd?

Or was it the single bright bloom at the end of each performance,
the cheery smears of blood across their lips?

It's unknowable; groupies typically survive four performances, tops.
