Norman Santos

(Nov.19,1990 / Philippines)


The grinding pebble beneath our feet
and the ashes plummeting
from our chapped, silent lips
they faded with the taillights
that we used to watch

Under the canopy of halcyon clouds
and the walls of vicariousness
shroudning our loneliness together
they fell like rain, evaporated to form
a diaphanous reckoning cloud

Remember how we sifted through
coarse rummaging and ruminations,
peeled and stropped through transitions
and how we lost the end of our threads
to the brazen clangor of laughter

We weren’t there for each other
whe the downpour washed
the shaows that we carried,
we weren’t there for each other
when the walls divulged
the creases of our bridges
But please remember,
the distant shape of memory

The Apple on the Tree—
Provided it do hopeless—hang—
That—"Heaven" is—to Me!
