Manhood

in the center of my garden
of paradise
i stand alone
naked facing a mirror pool
where i see my
own image

i raise my hands to touch
the moon
it is golden on a sheen of fingers
touching my body

i squirt
too much light
so many seeds of light

some tiny hungry grass forms
have mouths
open

drinking some dews from the leaves
of my body

this is the cycle of my
solo existence

squirts of light
when the moon fades in a universe of dark space
it is so silent

Manifestations

she comes
late tonight
and tells you
she is very tired
that she was
with her aunt
and in the
restaurant
where
they ate
early dinner
where they
drank
light beer and
smoked
some marlboro

and they were
laughing
on some jokes
that i told you
the other day
about married
people who
do not make
do
anymore as
often as they
want to
on the
early part of
their marriage
the honeymoon
that you
do not want
to remember
anymore

and then she
kissed you
goodnight
on your cheek
slightly and she
went straight
to your
bedroom
turned the air
condition
on and then
wrapped herself
with thick
wool blanket
and closed her
eyes and
slept
with all the
lights
on

she curled
like a puppy
that
we bought
yesterday

you guess
she must
be very
lonely in this
kind of
misery

the time
is 9: 30 p.m.
it is
saturday
and it is
raining
and there
is no one
in the house
anymore.

Manila This Summer

Here you all come
Manila
The City of
Cardinal Sin

A picture of you
is sent
The sun is behind you
Fading

I know that smell
The air from the sea that carries
the news of
A hundred dead rats
You cross the road
Run! Run!

You are staying in one of those
tiny rooms now
Your favorite greeting is
'Excuse me'

They all think that we all love
shrimps and crabs
Which they all think are the most
expensive delicacies that
we all have to wait for hours
creating the suspense of our
palates

They are all wrong
We are too simple for them
and they are too complicated for us
In such a
way that to maintain this balance
We keep our mouths shut.

Mankind Butoh...

Mankind is trying to figure out how to stand up,
but
they all fall down the stairs.
They are frustrated for a moment.
Then
they move around,
learns their abilities and surroundings
and
gain confidence as they sit upright and smile.

Then through a little ingenuity they hop up. Their legs are weak and they fall down again.

They look at their feett like, 'What's wrong with it? '

Then it dawns on them that they won't get back up those stairs any time soon.

Exasperated, they slump down.
