* DAVAO, PHILIPPINES


In Davao, Philippines
small enterpreneurs grow
as their lending
investments
the condo making
mall propagating
construction projects
development
agri-business booming
and tourism industry hits a blow

the davawenos hospitality
the durian display
and the infamous ironical imagery
the fresh dead with riddled bullets
bath with own blood lying on the streets

summary killings attract peace
but reject victim's justice

    they are all beautiful... (Report) Reply

The hour yet bears for thee and me

If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
