abo sa dila

May iniisip ka? Oo. Ano? Ayaw kong sabihin. Baka magkatotoo.

 
Dahil makulit ka
Kilala kita. Oo, ikaw 'yun: Nagkasalubong na tayo minsan, sa LRT, sa Gotohan, sa kanto ng Aurora at Katipunan. Nagkatinginan tayo. Hindi mo ako kinausap, pero alam ko, nakilala mo rin ako. Kaya ka narito, di ba? Para sabihing, Oo, oo, ikaw nga 'yun. Naaalala kita.
O, ha, Plurk, o, ha!
Radyo? Radyo?
Libreng humirit

Mag-exercise tayo tuwing umaga
Tambay ka muna
Lokal Kolor
Ano'ng hanap mo?
Basa lang nang basa
Tropa ko

Ayuuuuun. Gets ko na:

Rain King
Counting Crows

When I think of heaven
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of flying down into a sea of pens and feathers
And all other instruments of faith and sex and God
in the belly of a black-winged bird.
Don’t try to feed me
I’ve been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She’s been crying, I’ve been thinking
And I am the rain king

And I said mama, mama, mama, why am I so alone?
I can’t go outside
I’m scared I might not make it home
I’m alive, I’m alive but I’m sinking in
If there’s anyone at home at your place, darling
Why don’t you invite me in?
Don’t try to bleed me
Cause I’ve been there before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She’s been lying, I’ve been sinking
And I am the rain king

Hey, I only want the same as anyone
Henderson is waiting for the sun
Oh, it seems night endlessly begins and ends
After all the dreaming I come home again...

When I think of heaven
Deliver me in a black-winged bird
I think of dying
Lay me down in a field of flame and heather
Render up my body into the burning heart of God
in the belly of a black-winged bird
Don’t try to change me
Cause I’ve been here before and I deserve a little more

I belong in the service of the queen
I belong anywhere but in between
She’s been dying, I’ve been drinking
And I am the rain king

Hindi pa ako uuwi, bibili lang ako ng kornik, para may pulutanin tayo.

O, patak-patak na rin para sa yosi.

Sabi ni Federico Garcia Lorca sa Cante Jodo (Deep Song):

"The duende is a momentary burst of inspiration, the blush of all that is truly alive, all that the performer is creating at a certain moment. The duende resembles what Goethe calls the "demoniacal." It manifests itself principally among musicians and poets of the spoken word, rather than among painters and architects, for it needs the trembling of the moment and then a long silence."

Habang naggogrocery sa Shopwise kasama sina Leo, may dalawang babae kaming nadaanan. Sabi nila, "Sir, free taste po ng Bailey's. Sir, libre siya, okey, masarap."

Sabi ko, "Okey 'yan, a. Tamang-tama, birthday mo, mehn."

Sabi ni Leo, "Sandali. Bili muna tayo ng V-Cut. Para may pulutan tayo."

Hindi angkop, pero:

Sister Luck
Black Crowes

Worried sick my eyes are hurting
To rest my head I’d take a life
Outside the girls are dancing
’cause when you’re down it just don’t seem right

Feeling second fiddle to a dead man
Up to my neck with your disregard
Like a beat dog that’s walking on the broadway
No one wants to hear you when you’re down

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else’s name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else’s name

A flip of a coin
Might make a head turn
No surprise, who sleeps
Held my hand over a candle
Flame burnin’ but I never weep

Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else’s name
Sister luck is screaming out
Somebody else’s name

What a shame

Pag-ibig ba 'ka mo? 'Eto, p're, makinig ka nang mabuti:

Huwag kang papasok sa mga ganyan nang inaasahan mong may kapalit ang pag-ibig na inilalaan mo. At kung may iniaalay naman sa iyong kahit ano, huwag mong isiping umaasa ang nag-aalay na may kapalit ito. Hindi 'yan Math o Economics o Accounting. Huwag mong daanin sa kuwentahan, sa bilangan.

Basta't ibigay mo ang kaya mong ibigay. Pagkatapos nu'n, subukin mo pang magbigay nang kaunti. At kaunti pa, at kaunti pa. At kapag nabigo ka rito, okey lang 'yun, huwag mong sisihin ang sarili mo. Tawagan mo ako, tapos inuman tayo.

'Eto, mas ukol:

Thorn In My Pride
Black Crowes pa rin

Wake me when the day breaks
Show me how the sun shines
Tell me about your heartaches
Who could be so unkind?
Do you dream to touch me?
And smile down deep inside
Or could you just kill me?
It’s hard to make up your mind, sometimes.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.

Are you wanting inspiration
You spill your secrets on me
Then you tell me with a whisper
Of things that will never be.
Do you hear me breathing?
Does it make you want to scream?
Did you ever like a bad dream?
Sometimes life is obscene.

My angels, my devils, my thorn in my pride.

Lover cover me with your sleep
Let your love light shine
Lover cover me with a good dream
Let your love light shine

***

May itatanong siya
at titingin ka sa malayo,
at iyon na ang sagot.

At tatango siya,
kahit hindi niya nakita
ang iyong pagpikit.

Better
Patrick Rosal

What’s ruined
you shouldn’t see right away
It should take all the mornings
you’ve ever spent bawling
over something small
long before you even know true grief
It should take the first moment
you watch your mother place
her lips on the open mouth
of your father dropped
on your corridor floor
until she breathes him back to life
It should take that whole night
and the next eleven hundred to follow
when you’ve earned
the patience of thieves your own
teeth already begun to rot from
your gums the ache
in your ankles your knees your hip
It should take some terrible song
and the rum-sweet sway
of a woman’s body you hold against yours

Brothers
on nights like this we dance
because we don’t know any better
Thank God we don’t or else
we all might live forever
sitting down

To Steve, Glenn, and Tee
