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

    na, mula noong 24 Enero, 2006, ang nakitambay dito

di mo ba ako kilala? anak ako ng congressman!

We had wanted so much

from this world. We had wanted
at least some quiet. Some hardwood wall
to protect us from the elements,
persistent distractions. We had wandered
too far. Now this absence. Empty things.
None of this foolishness,
magic or gimmickery.

Only this space, vacated now,
remembering when.
I tell you that under the sea,
a hermit crab leaves

its borrowed home,
ceramic boundaries too small
for its loud hunger.

Inside, desire
extends its pale fingers,
persistent as its sister elements.
We are pressed into shells,
resound with incantations
of need.

But now there is only this empty shell.
This emptiness. This wild beginning.

    well i did what you asked and tried a lot of beers (or at least, what i can handle). german white wheat beer is really good, and czech beer is close to san mig pale pilsen. but i miss san mig! i will make a beer study very soon.

    anyway i have a short short story written by yel (he sent it to me before) and was wondering if you'd like to see it?
