March

do not generalize the month
of March as the summer sun

there are surprises now with
the idiosyncrasies of time

changes here and there and
everywhere. I have seen this

hot high noon and suddenly
it rains so hard, an overflow

of the canalized emotions &
from the sky there flowed the

flowers for the dead, the songs
of sorrow, live lamentations.

March 16

Patty it is your birthday
and i am suppose to greet you

happy birthday, but i didn't
i change my mind
after all what can i give you
what can i say to you?

your son stepped into the abyss
between darkness and another darkness
he is maimed and cannot say a word to you

your husband's left eye got blinded
with a smirk of boiling oil
and there is no sense arguing what recklessness caused it
who pays for the damage done
where to go and be justified
the scales do not function well these darkest day of the year

your daughter plunged herself into the calendar days of the law
and she has no time with you
(did she greet you a happy birthday?)
how many husbands have she wasted?
she did not like kids i know and you love kids so much

time snobs you and you ask what have you done to its wings
to deserve its sharp claws?
i have no answers Patty, i am too preoccupied with so many theories
about the roots of sorrow
the branches of fear
the poisonous barks of injustice

good luck Patty have another year
make is saucy, try some beer, have a little smoke
they may cure your cancer.

Life is a sad novel Patty
and it will take some more years before it is finished.

Maria Theresa Leonora

I drink water
From this well
Using my
Bare hands

My shirt gets
Wet
Your dryness
Now
Is what I need.

Marianito Edited (A Poem)

Slowly the world devours my soul.
Slowly my soul rots in the abyss.
Where darkness looms and emptiness sways.
Deep in the chasm of turmoil
I see no light.

Where is the God Who once touched my soul?
Where is He whom I heeded?
Where is the purpose of my leaping;
into the unknown void,

Where is the light that I felt before?
Where is the ever consuming grace,
Who illuminated me to understanding?
Where is the Love that called me to accompany the Pain?
Where is His presence that shredded me to pieces?

The Awareness that engraved my soul
With his pitiful presence?
I am already gone, is there nothing more than this?
I already have no more strength, nothing more left.
No more life to live or give.

No desire:
To breathe, to waddle and to remain afloat.
I remain in the turmoil of the world’s darkness and pain.
Always stabbed and wounded to the core.
I am already shredded… what is there more to break?
Alas my dear poor soul.
When is will all these end?
