Melanie Agua

Rookie (1980 / Philippines)

mirrors underneath

Anonymity has giant leaps
that makes one vanished
and would not be tracked,
like soap bubbles busted.

It's a cushion for a repose,
when one's name becomes
too clutched to a shy neck,
booked for public's fancy.

And what fame embellishes
something must reciprocate;
that each concrete passage
has mirrors below the skirt.
