  11565.     

tarts and warts

on a sweet conversation like this
when you open
and i ask some more of this openness
in you,
you become my tart
i like the taste
of fruits and milk and some cheese
to last finger licking
goodness

then you take your turn
trying to open me like a canned
fruit juice
i stick to my lock and key
and you find it hard to
open
you like to drink the four seasons
in me
i refuse
i shifted your questions to something else
like the full moon last night
and you do not like
this one way traffic
between us
my road is closed
i only have
mysterious ends
your thirst shall not be quenched
you should know by now
i am not a tart
i am your wart

and so the saying goes like a road
diverging
i'll take the other one
you take that one
i know
the one less travelled by

you are the poet
i am less

  11566.     

taste

it is a matter of taste
years of bitterness
cannot teach you
in a day what sweetness is

years of searching
cannot give you an hour
of a solution to the problems
you are grappling with

you mellow down through the years
what tastes so sweet to them
in your discriminating expertise
is never sweet to you

you keep a glass of your favorite concoction
the one that makes you live
she takes the courage of taking a sip
her face changes and she vomits

what makes you live is always
the exquisite taste of bitterness
the one that strengthens your mind
and that makes a lot of difference

  11567.     

tawo gihapon ako

akong basihan ang sulti sa akong lolo,
ang lalaki kinahanglang adunay baroganan
walay daghang pulong
kay ang iyang pulong usa lang ug dili na kani maparog
kon iya nang mabuhian

ug misunod ang akong amahan
ang lalaki dili alang sa panimalay kon dili sa darohan
diin ang iyang mga kanding, kabayo ug mga kabaw
sa daghang sagbot matagbaw

nadungog ko sila sa klaro sa wala pa sila mipanaw
apan bisan sa akong tumang kamingaw
gidasig ako
sa paghatag ug kahulugan kon unsa ba ang lalaki
kon unsa ba ako

tawo gihapon ako
usahay gani mahutdan sa pulong
usahay mawad-an sa baroganan
usahay mabalian ug bukog
usahay magkiang
magsangkiig sa kalibog ug
kahadlok ug kabalaka
kon unsay dangatan sa akong
ugma sa akong kapalaran

masayop usab ako madam-ag maulawan
mawad-an ug kusog
ug sakto nga barog

usahay moiyak usab ako sa tumang
kasuko ug sa tumang kalipay
nasuta ko kini sa akong
kaugalingon

ug sa tumang paubos
gidawat ko ang akong kahuyang
ang akong kakulangon
sa akong kaugalingon

ug labi na sa tanan gidawat ko
ang akong pagkinahanglan
kanimo babaye
karon nga akong gihalaran

tea pot

how nice for it
to react under such stress
despite being
heated it still manages to whistle...
