The Task Every Morning Before Breakfast - Poem by RIC S. BASTASA

maybe it will just be once
every dawn

or just once
every weekend

or if you ask
may just once a month

because the body maybe
is so exhausted

but no
i will not stop

i will still do it
twice or even five times every morning

even if the body is tired
even if you do not like doing it anymore

it is delicious
it is wonderful

it is as though i had just an ejaculation
it is as though I've seen heaven

so here i am with this craft again
even if you are no longer around


writing poems religiously
every morning.


bisag kausa lang sa
matag kaadlawon

bisag kausa na lang
sa matag semana

o kon mohangyo ka
bisag kausa na lang sa matag bulan

kay basin og kapoy na kaayo
ang lawas

dili mahimo
buhaton ko lang gayod gihapon

sa matag buntag
kaduha kalima pa gani

bisag kapoy na kaayo ang lawas
bisag dili na nimo gusto

lami man god
mora kog magawsan og kadaghan

lami man god
mora kog kakitag langit

bisan wala ka na
mosulat lang jud ko gihapon og mga balak
