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!
Mag-exercise tayo tuwing umaga
Tambay ka muna
Ano'ng hanap mo?

There is a body
and a crow waiting on a body. The body is full of suffering. Meaning, the body has life. For the time being. Define being. Life. Define life for the time being. The body filled to the point of breaking. The body with eyes wide in prayer. Define prayer. That which only God is able to hear. There is an ear detached from a body. Meaning, torn away. Out of place. An ear unable to hear that which is taking place. There is a crow. There is the sound of a crow nibbling on a leaf. For the time being. Define being. There is a body and here is a hand. See how it moves to cover this mouth. Define that which only God is able to hear. Define this. Not prayer.

I think your writing is evolving to its next level, leaving behind the romantic to an approximation of something harsher, more politically nuanced, more polemical. I do not know if this is good, but I am intrigued, and will wait to see more. Best wishes Mikael, and I do hope you achieve the greatness I know you're capable of.
defamiliarized yet familiar. you know how to toe the line and you do it so well. :D
