Six Thirty Nine In The Morning

it is raining
but the way the things are going
this morning seems to be so soft and gentle
tiny needles of rain like some snowflakes
in my mind

i have not been to chicago or to new jersey
or to any place where there is snow
where the coldness perhaps
strikes at the core of the heart

where my loneliness
though how far taken to make it
disappear like a car running to the farthest road
and like a dot dissolving in the horizon

shall not perish
not even diminish like a number five
subtracted from four

it is cold even when the sun starts to shine
simply because
you are not here with me

Infidelity is far more popular
that baseball, barbecues or ball-room dancing,
for changing partners when you're being copular
apparently can be far more entrancing
than many other pastimes popular for leisure,
though unrecorded in the books of Guinness,
but I believe it's wrong to knock such forms of pleasure
which should be recommended to all 'sinners, '
a word pejorative, judgmental and offensive
that should not even now be used by preachers.
If only infidelity were not expensive
I'd like to try it––there are lots of teachers,
for if it's true that nearly everybody does it,
that means your wife or husband does it too,
and that it's high time that you came out of the closet
and do to others as most others do.

Joseph Hopper writes about infidelity in 'Now Infidelity Comes Out of the closet' (the NYT, April 29,1999) . A 1994 survey performed by University of Chicago researchers found that 25 percent of men are unfaithful to their spouses and 12 percent of women.

Brother Joe Zam

finally brother joe zam
the legal researcher from Dipolog has made it at last, to
Las Vegas, now with cousins, all struggling to make both ends meet

on a down economy, what a wrong timing, i think, something's wrong
with the weather up there, and he's not smiling and groping with the coldness
of the melting snow

but there is no coming back now, wife and daughter are there
all for the mighty dollar, and the motto is always, as before
no retreat no surrender

tightening belts and taking all the efforts
knowing what hardwork is from a to z, from
the beginning to the day till the beginning of another day

no one knows what a legal researcher can do but i know, i know,
it will be onward Chicago, and there will be plenty of work to choose:

gardening, gasoline boy, apple picker, nursing aide, hotel boy,
caregiver, and whatever

another wife perhaps, another coldness within, and as always and ever
shall be

away from home, and the last choices:

a) homesickness
b) broken home

he can take b) .

Good Bye And Fairwell...Send Them Straight To Hell

Mysterious eyes, red dress and accent of gold
my heart was betrayed by there hold
found myself upon the midnight hour
unable to resist her power

Room lit by burning amber of cigarette
a wine drenched man learned the meaning of regret

by my side she will no longer be
chose to cross the ocean and sea

With flamenco sound all around
my warmth will no longer be found

She held my hand and called me love
forever and always she promised me to the man above

what a horrible decet that she strived
She was gone before she arrived....
