a random mental scrapbook for things rescued from the detritus of everyday, maintained
by an impossibly romantic, oftentimes obsessive compulsive, but always incredibly
unfrazzled and beautiful (or so she'd like to think), bride-to-be.

Name:

A woman who writes feels too much,those trances and portents!
As if cycles and children and islands weren't enough;
as if mourners and gossips and vegetables were never enough.
She thinks she can warn the stars. A writer is essentially
a spy. Dear love,
I am that girl. --from THE BLACK ART by Anne Sexton

IDLIP

IDLIP
Para kay A

Di ako makatulog.

Ngayon pang gabi piniling
maging mailap sa akin
ng mga talinhaga.
Kung kailan pa naman sana’y
may okasyon
para sa magarbo’t mabulaklak
na pananalita.

Di ako dalawin ng antok.

Mahal, ngayong gabi
isang bagay lamang
ang aking natitiyak:
kahina-hinayang lustayin
ang mga natitirang sandali
sa walang-kamalayang paghilik
at pag-idlip.
