the rainbow illusion


yesterday i opposed
the system of
the rainbow

i no longer worship
its bright colors

at the back i drench
my body with rain

and then i stab the rainbow
because of my anger

those who watch
say that the rainbow is bleeding

as though
the rainbow is true

===================================== ==========


kagahapon
misupak ko sa sistema sa
bangaw

wala na ako
miluhod sa mga bulok

nagpaulan ako sa luyo
niini

og gitagbas nako ang
bangaw sa akong kalagot

sila nga nakakita
miingon nga ang bangaw nasamdan

mora bag
ang bangaw tinood
