"Everything is great." That's what ma said with her eyes, Faintly and glowing, and going sadly blind. Descend. "Everything is great and will be great, Delicate and radiant, and full of life as you are, mine Child." Mama, look at what I'm becoming, not the one imagined. I am real. I am real! I am here, am I not? …Where people saw kindness in her, they saw the same much of nothing in me. I saw nothing back at the world, too– mind you– nothing but black, and brown, And gray, and teal, and cyan, Ember over ember. Clout after clout. Brilliant child, intellectual child, promising child ...Read more

Better Dressed

Better Dressed

There's pride in sharing And then there's bowing down To lust upon Hollywoodizing mythologies my kababayan are eager to laud about It's easier to hate your own, hate your own, hate your own Because you wait for the paint to turn to white So you can appreciate them? With what? A bigger pocket? A better dress? What to you makes a better dress? One that submits to universal attention? But they weren't designed after Western values They were made for your immediates' eyes You twist your tongue to sound like you come from another village and pity those who still talk like the previou ...Read more

Part I: Chaos And Religion If you had a nickel for every time you crossed the road rooting for speeding cars to hit you in the middle in the middle where you close your eyes, waiting for that glorious fin Knowing that you will not get cheered on in the afterlife and you're okay with it But in the cold in-betweens and moments of internal chaos that have you wondering should you give in to theism, humanity's greatest vanity bow down to deities, pray to non-existing endless varieties that your mother and her sisters would not shut up about that the world wouldn't stop shoving down our ...Read more

Nectarine of the gods

Nectarine of the gods

Posted on:

I am not alright with dying. I am not alright with living, either. I am stuck in the pathos in between, A purgatory of my own making. One thread, one sledgehammer of my own sins. Some times I hate everyone. Some times I hate myself. I’m sick. I’m dizzy. Growing peaches in the dark. Getting stoic, Going greedy. Nectarine before the fall, Remedric after thaw. The world rushes straight, heteronormative too much, Disputes over land, Made-up histo[r]ic value, Burying children in the sand. Surely the gods didn’t put us here to argue but, boy, do you enjoy it. Forward. Forward. ...Read more

You do not compare to him All your work and you still do not compare to him You aren't even a pale imitation Just a passing soul that will never be good enough Tall enough Succeeding enough Resilient enough Happy enough Powerful enough enough Enough! You set his picture as your screensaver A telltale of a man you will never become That green sun pierces through your blinds Consume you with gusto like burns on your face You will never be that sight for sore eyes That calms the city and lull giants to sleep They want not your flesh and will toss you aside for fresher peach, a ...Read more
