Pansamantala

Sabik akong makausap ka muli
Baka nasanay lang sa araw-araw ba namang lilitaw ka sa tuwing may kwentong sisingit
Saglit lang naman siguro ang parusa, sanay naman tayo mag-isa
Kaso, mas gusto ko sanang kasama ka

Nakita ko na ‘to, tulad ng mga nauna sa’yo
Hindi rin nagtagal, napagod din sa wala
Dahil kahit naisin ko man ang maghintay
Sigurado ka nang walang puwang para sa 'kin 

Pero bakit kaya kay init at higpit ng mga yakap mo
Parang laging sinasabing, "dito ka lang, dito ka na lang"
Ang mga titig mo'ng tila pahiwatig na kung magiging pabor sa ‘tin ang mundo, 
Hindi ka magbabaka-sakaling tumira sa puso ko

Walang awat naman ang bulong ng mga buhol sa aking kalamnan
Hindi ko mawari kung paruparo o masamang pangitain
Baka kailangan mo ko. 83 more words

Forgetting and Un-Forgetting

On 23 September 1972, the Filipino dictator Ferdinand Marcos officially announced that two days ago, on the twenty-first, he’d signed Proclamation 1081 which placed the country under martial law, ostensibly in response to mounting unrest and threats from campus radicals and a nascent communist rebellion; Enrile, the defense secretary, had even been ambushed by unknown assailants, his official vehicle convoy sprayed with bullets. 2,840 more words

Cauldron of Plenty

Our neighbors have generously shared their bounty of corn and potatoes with us. We have so much corn and potatoes that Beloved almost ran to the computer to find various recipes. 199 more words
