Remembering Mother Today

I know mother dear
You were never alone in your life
Because you always
Embraced me
My warm blanket always
During those cold nights
When papa was always away
On his personal journeys

I know mother dear
You always have many thoughts
Forethoughts
Second thoughts
Afterthoughts
To everything that you think and do
You have always
Considered me
More that anybody
Even setting aside
What you are to yourself
In the hierarchy of things
In the order of events
It was always me
Above all

Remembering The Old Notes Of The Love Song

same boring refrain
you must tell this again
a man
stroking the ukulele
with nothing but
an old broken
love song in his mind

makes you sick
and vomit
but that is the truth
and i will take it
with a good
candid
heart

don't you ever know
how to listen
and be hurt?

hurt me again if you will
but i love you
still

Remembering The Philosophy Writing Club Of 1980

the ark, the cover is a drawing of
three yellow sunflowers on a yellow cartolina
it is cynthia v.
on the loose, and there was norman naromal, edith requina,
flor chamen, elvi tamayo, ruschel salvana, lino moleta,
boni quirog, susie cantos, bong jabla, paul suaybaguio,
bong daray, jean lim, james piap, elsa lee, marking que, greg casino,

we thanked fr. moga, lilia, fr. esquerra, fr. barcelon, and everyone,
we thank them for everything

there were small brown birds of the common species
on the Ark of Noah

i was there on pages seven, ten, eight, and nine
on the three levels of seeing

there was this man who was trying to figure
things, who am i? what i am up to? where am i going?

his name is

Remembering The Simpler Days Of Your Life

it was when your excitement
was only the strong wind
for the ripe mango to fall for
you to pick

it was when your sadness
was only about a failing grade
on a math quiz

it was when your happiness
was the carabao ride
from your nipa hut to
the public school

it was when your sweetness
was tasted by your mama
like an icing from a cake

it was when your escape
was the plunge in the river
with your naked friends


it was when your conversations
are about fairies and princesses
and frogs and lost shoes


it was when the coolness was
the thick grasses spreading
on the plains

it was when joy was the playing
and bathing under the rain
on the month of November

now these changes have made
things more complicated
people hard to deal with and
a self that is deeper, darker
and difficult to really understand.
