Cleanliness

“Kung hindi mo kayang linisin ang kapaligiran, huwag mo na lang dumihan,”

or, if you can’t clean the surroundings, don’t make it dirty then.

The sign is repeated in several waiting sheds along the streets of the city.

Developing entity in social evolution is not the individual, but culture. Culture is the result of the social interaction of learning individuals, the result of a collective learning process.

Poetry: Imperial Manila

Imperial Manila

 

How straw hat to name a cross a

cross. Is there a manuscript?

 

My bereavement swells

at your breath,

 

the morning itself is at a loss.

The word ‘critical’ has been wanting

 

a piece of you,

its heart whispering of halts.
