  11573.     

Remembering Jong.....

she predicts
six months only she said
we cannot last that long
and we hear it
but are not bothered

we believe somehow
and it is basic
nothing lasts forever

we work so hard
we forget the hours of the day

she goes around
talking

three months are all she had
and then she was buried by those

who pity her
and give her the much needed understanding

i am one of those who
send her off
to the other side of this world

i utter friendship
i keep it

what i can hand her with dignity
is just the forgetting.

  11574.     

Remembering Kierkigaard...

i have the cold arms of
the earth
wet mud, my mind is a dew
on a leaf,
my spirit do not soar
like a rocket in
space
i have numb thoughts
about this
once loving arms
i have only ceilings without
stars
the heart is like a drum
torn at its center
soundless at
dawn
i want to go somewhere else
to places without
names
i am a future annihilation of
what was once
constructed
a hardship that wants to
fade
a love that looks like
faded blue jeans
desire is a straight line of that
machine
telling that someone is dead
there is this strong odor of chloroform
in the bedroom
one can hear the song
of the ticks
the curtains sigh like air
the pillow does not murmur
there is this hum imagining the
face of someone
you know it but you cannot say it
things like these happen
they do
and then we say oh i am so sorry
i am human and i will always be
'sadder than sad, bluer than blue'
the contempt of my silence
the thrill of what to do next
the blur of the moment
this sickness unto
death....

Remembering Mother

my mother was cool
like halo-halo
she was too private
and exclusive
to me. The rest about us
was always kept
as a secret.
When she died
she left me the sweetest
smile. The rest of my siblings
cried. Their faces broken.
They want to curse
and think that life is unfair
that God did not hear
their prayers.
I kept tradition. I wore my
tinted sunglasses
i shed no tears at all.
She told me God is fair.
She took pride of her love
for me. Always for me.
When her coffin was finally
laid, I smiled.
She found rest and
She is happy that I am
the only one
Who understood her.
My happy mother
I remember.

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
