society ***** PAYATAS DUMPSITE OVERNIGHT


(a year after the mournful tragedy)

Down
On your man-made mountain

Frighten
Of another collapse
Of another tragedy
Deprives the innocent
The poor the majority
The hunger

I am blank

As I throw sympathy to all night scavengers
Digging for endless survival

Your smoke your artificial breath
I smell too

And I truly understand
Only poor country
Loves deadly-poisonous air

In earth or heaven;
Finding thy way through prison-bars
Up to the stars;
Or, true to the Almighty plan,
That out of dust created man,
