Miguel

Ngayong tag-araw
natuto tayong magmahal
sa mga bagay na simple, musmos
at pangkaraniwan na sa pangkaraniwan.

Tulad ng pagtunaw sa dilim ng ating mga katawan.
(mula solido patungong anino)

Tulad ng paglambong ng lambot ng hamog sa parang.
(at ang unang pag-usal ng pag-ibig sa tunog ng pangalan)

Tulad ng pagtalunton ng konstelasyong Orion
sa madilim na bubong na maabot lamang
ng pagtingala't pagbibilang ng kisap ng matang-langit.
(mga bituin sa yerong binutas ng sanlaksang titig)

Ngayong tag-araw
ang unang pagtuklas
sa pagbalikwas ng mga batas
ng pangkaraniwan na sa pangkaraniwan.

Ang unang paggagap sa mga simbolo't sagisag,
na hindi maangkin ng anumang salita,
na hindi mapapangalanan ng anumang kataga,

Kung saan mananatiling nasa dulo ng umid
na dila ang unang linya ng tula,

at sa pagitan ng saglit
ng buntong hininga at halik
at bugso ng mga subersibong mata,
ang lahat ay nagiging makata
ng mumunti't pangkaraniwang daigdig.

Ngayong tag-araw,
naiwan ko ang kalahati ng tula
at ang titulo ng akda
sa iyong bibig.

hi, caloy!!!! ang ganda naman nito. ito peyborit ko sa lahat ng nabasa kong tula mo. naaalala ko tuloy summer nights namin ni tom sa kule. hehehhee. sa motel na walang bubong.

i can't possibly express how much i envy the sophistication of your thoughts. parang kailan lang na isa kang budding kloseta na umakyat sa kule, tahimik pero may flash of defiance na sa mga mata.

haaay, caloy... naiinggit ako dahil napayaman mo ang iyong sarili (para sa lipunan). isang araw, parati kong iniisip, makakabasa na rin ako ng mga binabasa niyo. isang araw, mauupuan ko na ang mga inaamag kong readings. seize the day talaga, caloy. you cannot fathom the regret and envy i feel as i see my friends raise their intellectual levels to heights na feeling ko hindi ko na maaabot dahil kailangan kong harapin ang daily grind ng pagiging empleyada.

o sya, para na itong dear manay charo. labsyu. ingat ka... sulat ka pa ng tula. =)

Cholesterol not only comes from the foods that you eat but it can also come naturally from your family history. One of these herbal medications was said to lower your normal cholesterol level by fifty points in just one month. The normal cholesterol level that your body naturally makes is secreted form your liver. There are many different normal cholesterol level lowering medications and there are even herbal medications that are said to work on lowering your normal cholesterol level very quickly. You might be thinking sadly that there is no way that you can get your liver so secrete less normal cholesterol level, but then you would be wrong. So why not ask your doctor if you should be doing something about your normal cholesterol level level. Some of these medications have a very low number of side effects because they are all natural, but you should definitely ask your doctor if these statements are true, and whether or not you should take them. Your liver secretes normal cholesterol level no matter what, it does not matter what kind of foods you eat, in fact your liver is as important or even more important in your normal cholesterol level level than the food you eat. These drugs are called statins, and are very effective in lowering your normal cholesterol level level with relatively few complications. There is also a less natural way of lowering your natural normal cholesterol level level, but it is also very well proven in the medical field.
