Bridge over Pasig River

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.

The Pasig River Cruise

Riverside scenes of the commuter ferry ride along the Pasig River.

From the waterlilies, to the boat that crosses the river from the Mandaluyong side to the Makati side,

to the historic Post Office Building in Manila.
