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

for Sigh

Because sleep is a ghost sleep is a hummingbird
sleep is the tip of a cat’s nose when it closes its eyes
and makes a rumbling sound only it can hear or you
if you hold it close to your chest because sleep
is a moving shadow let me touch you. Let me
hold you in the dark domes of my imaginings.
Let me believe that once I was an ant once I died
of sweetness once in the deep blue memory of a song
I sat on a leaf and told you will you be an ocean
can I float can I cup a piece of you in my hands
and will you not slip through? Will you wait
for the horizon to move towards you and all
the dolphins can I tell them to close both eyes
and rest on your belly. Listen. I am a submarine
and I move in the dark and the dolphins hear me
the dolphins talk back and when they arch
their silky bodies when they leap when they feel
the wind the sun the reflection of a lone albatross
on the water on their luminous foreheads when they
keep silent I am filled with awe and longing. You
are an ocean. The world is full of things that breathe
that sing the world wants me to move beneath
your surface wants me to tell you this is a song
and the rhythm goes breathe and feel your heart fill
with water feel the water wane and you are an ocean
and your edges touch sand and once I was a child
once I waded knee-deep into you and the stars
that shone on your back scattered the stars
became holes pulled light into them pulled me
wading knee-deep into you pulled the stars
on your shimmering back the stars dissolved
into circles became water went on and on and on...
