  5597.     

At The Beach On A Sunday Morning

this is an isolated place
the coconut trees are growing uninterrupted
by the talisay trees long ago cut by papa
fenced by barbed wires and planted with carabao grass
this is one thing that sometimes i miss in my life
the molave gate is left open
for the caretaker knows that i am coming
to spend my sunday here...

i told them that i prefer being alone this time.

At The Beach One Noontime

WE arrive On the beach at noon
i park my white car nearby

the sun is at its top
whirling so much heat

the white dog on my side
is breathing through its tongue

i sit on a coconut trunk
uprooted by a storm last night

the sea is calm and silky blue
there are no foot marks on the sands of the shore

when this dog chases a stray cat
it will just be me left alone again.

  5599.     

At The Boulevard, Dumaguete City

slowly, the gray clouds open
like a door
giving way to the sun
coming in like
a glowing ball of fire

and then i see this old woman
lying on the lap of another
old woman
by the side of the
brick pavement

i can't find a word that is too sad
to describe this reality...

it speaks to me
i am here, do not abandon me

then another voice says
I have not forgotten you

there are lots of people
walking and thinking about their own lives
and not minding

other people's anger.

the sun is too good to be true.
but it is.

At The Bus Station In Kota Raya (A Translation From The Bisayan Original Poem Of Leo Flores)

Here at the bus stop going to Kota Raya
the colors of the skin of the people are many
if your diaper is borrowed
others may mistake it as theirs along the way.
================================

Dinhi sa Bus Stop padung sa Kota Raya
Ang bulok sa panit sa mga tawo daghan
Kung ang imong sapin hinulaman baya
Basin sa dalan ikaw pagahubuan.


- LEO BOB FLORES
Bukit Batok, Singapore
