Rommel Mark Dominguez Marchan

Rookie (Pilipinas / a.k.a. Jetfellow Marchanism)


seen thru University of the Visayas rm.342 before my 'intro to law' subject
seeing the oldest street in entire archipelago by world history

If I could recall all busy shoppers
passing by along gaisano main mall
in exit-entrance door, recalling grocery items
they had just bought
after their window shopping or for amusement
before waiting jeeps enroute to Inayawan, pardo,
lahug, ayala, urgelio, talamban, SM route
near pedestrian intersection corner jakosalem
beneath rosita bldg.besides rose pharmacy
wandering people along plaza fair
to gems lhullier to colonade mall to metro gaisano
to downtown cebu

if i could remember all there busy faces
it should be kept and printed thru all the years
the smile features, fashions style
the how many times they come and go here and there
with wine of wandering unconsciously watched and
observed by freelance spectator here at room 342
it is me, seen by me
unknowing how tired the traffic post flashing
monotonous red yellow green, the silent rhyme stop look and listen
unknowing of the bolante vendors
the snatchers, the hold uppers
fratmen TAU and AKRHO notorious rivalry
the leftist recruiters sneaking secretively to indoctrinate
fresh nerd students

If i could recall these crowded scenes all over again
i probably not here alone idly waiting for nothing
watching un-program scenario just to cheer up my boring hours
in waiting to my boring law professor who will
surely discuss later about latin maxim-
reviving dead language for law bar benefits
