  9197.     

my valentine's gift for you

i am offering you
a ticket to Bangkok
you fly this April
on a 13th
alone, you said
you need
space and time
you said
you need a room
a sailboat
a place without me

and here i am
i am giving you
this ticket for free
see Thailand and
be with the elephants
eat a lot of durian
and just be free

you like it?
say yes, say yes

i like it
i want to go with her
without you too
we like to do it
in a room not well-lit
in Guanzhou
and in Taipie

  9198.     

my visitors this morning

she comes early this morning
blue all over
and i give her tea and let her speak what is in her mind.

like she is a storm today,
she has given me turbulence, speaking about how abuse
can be inflicted, verbal physical emotional, against her
a woman of virtue
and intellect, she sips the tea and breaks some cookies
her breakfast today, and she continues about
what he did to her

i am listening then the door bell rings
it is him, and he gets another tea
for sympathy and he listens to her outpouring too,
these kinds of abuse
inflicted by one to another
getting to be
so normal an occurrence, that everyone seems to accept
without question,

she is his wife
the man has white hair, and balding, and his shirt
is not well ironed, his face still unwashed,
wrinkles on his face,

she is complaining about his abuses on her person
and he merely listens
and he wants to explain how these matters started
and how they may not be true
how violent can she become
when provoked by her
mood swings

her face changes from calm to something
you will not like
and she does what you may now believe
because she kicks him
she slaps him

and he merely listens
i guess, that explains the mess, that this couple
now intruding my privacy, has found themselves into,

i tell them i have other things to do today,
and since their tea is consumed, then they must now take
their leave

my morning is not that great, actually, i do not like it
and them too.

  9199.     

my way

i made my own way
through the uncleared trees
the sharp leaves of cogon grass
i bleed
drops of blood mark
my way
and yet you follow me
in this tryst
my heart is flattered
when you finally said
you chose
my way
you chose pain rather
than pleasure

and the pain is gone.

  9200.     

my way of stealing happiness

i'll take a bite of the luscious grape
break the pulp within
savor the sweetness inside my mouth
play with the hands of my
tongue
i always close my eyes
when i swallow what is supposed
to be yours.
