Swallowing Everything.... - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

one dead leaf
has fallen from dried twigs
under the
tree of bones
on a very humid
high noon

you still have many things
to swallow inside
your throat


pride for instance

you take everything
now
without any complaint

there is no sound
no grumble

a book
full.


^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^
sa usa ka patay nga
dahon
sa silong sa mga sanga
nga uga
diha sa punoan nga
nakalabira
sa tumang kainit sa
kaudtuhon

daghan kag malad-ok
sa imong tutunlan

ang garbo pananglitan

tunlon mo ang tanan
sa walay tingog

usa ka librohan
