May iniisip ka?
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.

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...
