review:
???
unknown origin

ako'y tutula,
mahabang-mahaba.
akoy' uupo.
tapos na po.

  translation:
i'll recite a poem, so long.
i'll sit down. it's done.

this is probably the coolest eight words of any single poetry i've ever saeen. it projects command & power while still showing some respect and humility (in the form of 'po'). then you could say it's a rebellion as he says one thing and does the other (from a proposed long oratory to a short-lived one). this has been a joke for so long now, and it's not really funny because it's not really intended to be really funny. it is probably in rebellion of those grade schools against their teachers who make them write poems like they're all natural-born poets, but only the greatest of their kiss-ass classmates gets all the credit. by the way, if you know the origin of this verse or its author, please email me.

ayun lang ang masasabi ko... ...ronjie, oct '98.

 
two breaths in your presence

hold your breath
behold
beauty
for all the eyes to stare
for all the weak to seek
for all the strong to speak
for all the humans to fight for
exhale
ahh...
it passes again...

hold
the memory
the memories

thank you

smile
breathe
exhale
