THE MASOCHIST

Subsequent to your harsh temperature

that orchestrates with your bitter tone,

that sometimes coats your anticipated

saccharine hint,

and whiff that is usually irresistible;


I beg for a second serving.

SURRENDER


Despite the unyielding
solicitude
that mushrooms
what used to be

airtight,
invulnerable,
nuclear cube of my soul?


Despite your salient felicity that signals my breath?


Despite your faint stirs
and whips and coils
that subsidize
this pain

of why I cannot own you.


Despite the regressing
gray conjunction
that I boundlessly
forget.


Why is it better that
I numb my conspicuous
sentiment of you?




(for a good friend who is doomed to surrender)

TAKAS

Paano tumakas mula sa penitensiya ng latigong
pumupunit sa litid
ng mapulang pahaging ang pagpitik?


Paano lumabas sa nilukubang kuweba ng
konsensiyang basag ang pananaw?


Paano sumuko sa rebeldeng taliwas ang pangako
sa niyakap na prinsipyo?


Paano bumalikwas sa pag-ibig na kulob sa
pagmamalaki at hilaw sa karanasan?


Pag minamalas ka nga naman.
