Manila, Recently Dead

Manila, recently dead
Bowed under by a heavy yellow cloud
Forest transported in its midst struggled
But soon black soot effaced the green

Trudging wraiths crossing Quiapo bridge
So many dead men walking in a line
In silence but for footfalls on greasy stones
Walking not knowing wither they all go

[Hata Bildir]
