I Have Taken Your Slice Of Bread

i have taken your slice of bread
from the table

it is for you
as i have already eaten mine
early
this morning

forgive me
i have learned
to eat more

and took
without so much
thinking
your share

the slice of bread
one half bigger
than mine

I Have This Big Mirror In My Living Room

i have this big mirror in my living room
i guess you must have liked it
yesterday you bought one and true to its purpose
your living room like mine has become a wide space
more fantasies, more time seeping in, more ideas perhaps,
more rivers in the mind, more skies, more emptiness,
but let me not talk about it for now.

i like it to be broken. Let me tell you in my next poem.

I Have To Speak....

it is nice to say
nothing
this i always see
in the other
person
always silent
nods when asked
shakes his head
when he disagrees
i wonder if being
mute is
a beautiful feeling
for that is what
skies and
seas do to us we who
stroll along the park
trying to figure out
how come we
love this noise
and miss it
when we are facing
the storms of
our lives
i dream to be secretive
for once
hide in the silence of
my loneliness
but the dread comes
rushing
and if i do not speak
i die.

I Have To Walk Away Again Looking For The Fresh Air

one finds a hard time nowadays
looking for fresh air

i step over a good view of the rice fields
from an Asian perspective

the rice fields are flowering
dews still sticking on the blades of grass
the sun is slowly rising from the mountains
a lot of fog hang on the sides
coconut trees are towering
not much winds today from the sea

a middle aged farmer stands under a tree
with his sweater on and his long bolo on his side
smoking his cigar
the woman in the house is cooking mud fish for breakfast
meanwhile she goes out and
starts a fire under the mango tree
burning a rubber tire
to drive some insects away
which she thinks are destroying
the tiny white flowers of
the tree


i smell the smoke coming from the cigar
it is floating in the air
the smoke from the rubber tire burning
is choking me

somehow that is what is being done to this world
brought about by ignorance and superstition and bad habits

i have to walk away again
looking for the fresh air
