Intoy has had the hots for Doray since they were kids in Kalye Marino, Cavite City, formerly the American Naval Base in Sangley Point. Both marginalized as the long-lasting effect of American abandonment of the said base, Intoy has become Kalye Marino’s best tahong (mussel) caretaker with-no-angst-about-poverty, while Doray is the cheap prostitute-with-no-guilt tending to her siblings’ needs. Intoy strives to have his own cages of tahongso he can have Doray, not for just a night of quickie sex, but forever. But what will he do when nature chooses to play a joke on his tahong cage at the very moment Doray offers to drop by his hovel-on-stilts to quench his passion? Will it be goodbye to his tahong business or to his damsel-in-distress and ultimately to Kalye Marino? From Eros S. Atalia’s 2001 Carlos Palanca Grand Prize winning Short Story,Intoy Syokoy ng Kalye Marino is a love tale minus the obligatory romantic sentiments.
