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

mondays are for abandon, v.2
Thursday, January 08, 2009
we're trying to revive the old mondays are for abandon blog. waps moved the old posts to another address. the old gimmicks there-- trying to come up with a poetics, having pseudonyms, etc.-- just complicated things. we've grown a little older, and consequently, a little less certain about a lot of the things we thought we knew a few years back. now all we want is to write, as earnestly as we can.

if you were part of the old blog, waps needs your blogger username so he can invite you. and you can go ask him about the url of our archives. if you think you should be part of it, then you should get in touch with waps too. 

we'll be writing about... well, i dunno what we'll be writing about, in this resurrection of the blog. i'm thinking of hosting some writing exercises/small-time contests, interviewing some people, reviewing some books or albums or films, whatever, posting work from ourselves or from whoever else, reposting calls for submissions and contest deadlines. but i dunno, really.

it'll be fun. do drop by.

UPDATE: i've received some texts/emails/yms re: being part of the blog. for now we're limiting the contributors to people who we've shared a lot of mondays with, until we can work out a system and a solid community. but please feel free to post your comments, or to email your thoughts and writings to us. we'd be happy to post them for you.

    but if you want the new blog to be private it's okay. i'm just trying to feature stuff from friends and local talent in our blog :)

    hi neva. oo naman. tropa lang ito ng mga mahilig mag-inuman. tapos later on, nang gumawa ng reading si sir rock sa mag:net katip, si joel toledo (kasama si andrea teran, initially,) napadalas na rin kami du'n. happy mondays ang ipinangalan sa reading, pero yung tropa, wala namang pangalan. nagkatuwaan lang sabihing "monday club" kasi nagkataon lang na lunes madalas nagkikita, nakasanayan na rin. :)

    hindi private yung blog. hindi nga rin siya new. pero siyempre di naman puwedeng buong mundo magkocontribute. so ayun, silip lang kung trip. kinoconsolidate pa ang mga contributors.

    Good news, Kael! :D I'm going to link (got a new blog just yesterday) and follow. Wheee.

    Dear Mikael, my name is Mou and I'm from India. I recently came upon some of your poems, and I can only say, with all honesty, you are one of the most talented poets I've come across in recent years. You remind m somewhat of Mark Doty, but your intense lyricality (If that is even a word) is what sets you apart.

    Here's hoping to see more wonderful things from you.

    Welcome aboard Mou, or should I say, welcome 'abroad'! Ha! Ha!

    Mr. Mou, you're the latest of a plethora of Kael groupies, and I hope you have a good time!!!

    It's Miss. Mou actually, and thank you.

    hello em. sent you an invite, of course. we missed you at marie's despedida.

    hello miss mou. that's really flattering. there are a lot of writers in the philippines, though, who i'm sure you'll like better. it's just that a lot of them are not as visible in the internet as some of us are. i hope you get to read the works of arkaye kierulf, joel toledo, and rafael san diego (waps). and i hope we get to read some of your works, too. do you have a blog i could link?

    and don't mind paul. he's probably brain-dead from listening to all that gloria estefan and debie gibson songs in his playlist, and from eating three dozen prawn puffs a day. the guy's weird.

    all *those* gloria estefan and debie gibson songs...

    Didn't need to add me. I don't think I can contribute anything. Magiging site janitor/receptionist lang ako if ever. LOL.

    Waaaaah! I missed it?! I was only texted na may despedida, didn't know when yung actual date. :S Sobrang dami ko nang di napuntahan na inuman. Arrrgh, kailangan ko bumawi. Stress.
