  5997.     

for C, J. A. C.

it is not a shame
to tell you that i am happier now
with two of us
in a row

the train has left us
here at the station

it left too early
taking the younger ones

those without
much experience

those whom we think
are undeserving
of their couches
and seats

you only have one trip missed
i had five and now i just had my sixth

I'll go for another one
and this will be the seventh train leaving
without me

it is unbecoming of me seeing you
hiding inside that cubicle of disappointment
i guess you must have been crying all night
more likely you do not like to eat dinner tonight

come out in the open
there are too many of us still waiting

when you are always left out
it becomes too ordinary

look at me
i am not sad
honestly i find it funny alredy.

  5998.     

for c.J.

I like stars
how beautiful are they
hanging on the
heavens

i wish i have their
brilliance

i see the most beautiful star
one night
falling to the ground
where i stand
as i am just one of those
ordinary men

i am sometimes uncertain of
what to say

i am a step now higher
to my little stair of
happiness


stars fall sometimes
but always for a reason

now, another star becomes like us
we are inspired by reason

stars always fall out
for a reason and we learn

to tiptoe on the paths
where weeds begin to wilt.

  5999.     

for Cita A.

perhaps you are a boat without an anchor.
we need anchors
because we are like boats
sailing in an ocean
sometimes the storms are bigger
and our sails are too small for the winds
and our rudders
are broken,

what i see is that you do not have any
and so i feel pity for you Cita
as you imagine walkie-talkies beside your ears
and talk about the machine of destruction
that is boring in your head like
grills,

that machine that bores holes in your skull
and yet everyone hears nothing
sees no blood

they cannot see what you insists
those that stole your locks and open your doors
and stole your furniture and computers
and spurn you

what education you have in the university
now you throw away
like a cheap earring

Cita, this poem asks you
see God.

  6000.     

for Claribelle

Life is a polite woman.
I have always told you that in class.
I delight in the politeness of a woman.
Outside the class.

When i fall in love, i keep it
to myself. There is no courage for
me to say it. I keep my own joys.

You are a polite woman.
I named you my own Life.
The class do not know that.
I keep it upon myself as a
lovely burden. I keep sorrows too.
Secretly, like
a divine burden, an un-confessed
sin.

Sometimes, i have not told you
before you left, i also mumble upon
myself, without any wish
that i may understand what i
try to hide,
completely. Soon i forget and then
I am happy again.

That is what life is all about.
I am polite too.
