  2797.     

about nothing at all

imagine an
empty space

your hands
have nothing
to hold

you float and
there is nothing
to land

a ship without
sea
no port visible
no anchor
no lighthouse

there is no storm
neither calm nor
chaos

there is no
poetry since
there are no
words
no thoughts
no spark
no inspiration

there is no house



there is





a vast emptiness
nothing follows.

  2798.     

about nothing at all (2)

imagine an
empty space

your hands
have nothing
to hold

you float and
there is nothing
to land

a ship without
sea
no port visible
no anchor
no lighthouse

there is no storm
neither calm nor
chaos

there is no
poetry since
there are no
words
no thoughts
no spark
no inspiration

there is no house



there is





a vast emptiness
nothing follows.

  2799.     

about nothing at all, yes.

you wake up
to find a cure to restlessness
perhaps, dreams become real
when you are awake
you look outside
everything are shadows of trees
dark, cold, abandoned,
you wish to open a window
but it will be much colder
you go back to your room
despite every blanket
and pillow
the cold fearful feeling is still there
you are down
you head is a floating ship
without an engine
the light from the ceiling hurts your skin
you fear for more
and you ask yourself analytically

what is this all about? what is this all about?
you pause
to know later
about a delayed neurological response

'actually, it is about nothing at all'
that voice is objective
it speaks the truth
it is inside you but it seems to be not a part of you

heavy, cold, restless, -and it is all about nothing at all.
welcome to the absurd,
it too is real, and those who do not have it
thinks, you need someone to love.

  2800.     

About other people’s lives

About other people’s lives

Rizal the hero must have chewed cud
And found the grass bitter, or the mongo
Beans too hard for his taste. Perhaps he
Did not know the exact number of
His buttons when he walked towards
Luneta and face his accusers
And meet his death. Perhaps he did not
Like the light from his lamp when
He wrote a poem. I do not really know
More about his persona life.
Did he like cheese? Did he take a deep
Breath and spit on the dogs along
The road? He poured no tears
Onto the frying pan of this
Old country. They wrote a lot
After two or more centuries
And there were so many stories
Not really rumors but I thank
God I am no great hero.
No one writes about me
And I think I am more understood
In my own privacy.

I do not really mind about
Other people’s lives
I do not peep on my
Neighbor’s windows.
I move my own hip
And drive my own car
Slowly away from those
Crowd on the parking lots
Of the mall. I like to stay
On the side of an abandoned house
And just sit there for a while
For no reason at all.
Winds do not frisk trees I guess.
Hairs fell wherever they want.
I touch my own cheek
And bite my own lips.
God! I like it when I am here
And no one minds me.
And I mind no one too.
I like the bridge
Long enough for my
Hand to travel on my nose.
