  9597.     

Kim Corda...

if you cannot be a gentleman
since you are never one
as you claim to be
with women as simply objects of your pleasure
with money as your god
and exploitation always your motive
in the self that is above all else
the center of your tiny universe
may i then advice you
to just, just
pretend to be a gentleman and do not
do not
ever hurt the one who loves you
because that one
has no control over this part
that we call the heart
this feeling that we
call love
so please i beg you
hide in that pretense
and be the man of this world
that any man or woman
cannot forget
at least in one moment of his/her life
that she/he
had ever fallen in love.

Kindergarten

There is so much
Noise

in kindergarten school

so much of their quarrel
is all about


A green rubber
band

beside a seesaw
and some
white balls

as early as this age
each has learned

already the convincing power
of a fist and a
pinch

Kindness

Things are destined to be lost
To be broken

The leaves fall and rot
At the foot of the tree

The roots soon shrink
And become part
Of the indifference of the

Rocks and the soil
Things move out
And up

Like vapor and then
Change their forms to air

But there are those that weep
And keep
Whatever was lost and destroyed

The leaves they take with their hands
And the roots
They stroke with the toes of their feet
Caress and
Kindness their virtues
That humanity has soon discarded

They grow the seeds in their hearts
They keep the fire of love
Burning
And the earth and the sun and stars
All smile at them

They too grow and scatter and travel
To all the places of this earth
Their forms too many
The gods know
They too must grow and get the world
Of the grass of sorrow

Kisaw Sa Kilomkilom

kon maghagwaay na gani
ang duha ka batan-on
diha sa daplin sa baybayon

molingiw gayod ang tigulang
kay dili na siya ganahan nga

mahinumdom pa kaniya
