1. I Told Love

    Get out of me stay
    Inked on the page be
    manageable I told
    Love.

    But there aren’t enough poems
    In me to exorcise
    You,
    And there aren’t enough poems
    In me to realize
    You.

  2. Thought-Powered Magnet

    My mind holds a thought-powered

    Magnet that used to pull

    You to the right corridors of Ateneo–I’d think

    Of you and you’d materialize just to say

    Hello.

    You’d pass me by giving

    A second

    Of your smile, never knowing

    I willed you there, just so I can look

    On and stare.

  3. Hey, sir! Hey, sir! Hey, sir!—said a female street harasser

    Hey, sir! Hey, sir! Hey, sir!–said a female street harasser

    Hey, sir! Good morning, mister! Hey, sexy boy! Good morning, mister! Anong masama, nag-gogood morning lang naman ako! Hey, pogi! Aba ang pogi naman natin! Hoy, gwapo! *Whistle* Musta na, manong gwapo? Hey, sexy boy!  Hey, sir!  Gumaganda talaga araw ko kapag nakakakita ng pogi! Hey, sir! Good morning, mister! Anong masama, nag-gogood morning lang naman ako! Hey, sexy boy! Hey, sir!  Hoy, gwapo!…

  4. To Write with Ease

    I want to write. I want to find an easy writing prompt that will allow me to write, and write, and write, and keep on writing till I don’t know anymore what to write and what to say. I want to feel the fervor of a speedily written line. I want to feel the fervor of a thought that doesn’t think but only expresses, only feels, only loves, only speaks. I want to keep on writing like it’s spiritual.

  5. Juancho the Little Indian Giver

    Juancho the Little Indian Giver

    When my cousin Juancho was really young, probably like 5 years old or something, he befriended our maid’s little son in Batangas. Juancho’s mother, Tita Girlie, just bought him lots of cheap plastic toys from the market, and a couple of torotot hats for New Year. For some sort of reason, Juancho started giving all his toys and hats to the other kid. He was like Ito sa iyo na ito, ito pa. We were…

  6. My OMG I’m in the First World Moments

    My OMG I’m in the First World Moments

    Note: I posted this on my Facebook, and I decided to post it here too.

    My impressions of Las Vegas, Nevada:

    1.) All the houses look the same. When the plane was landing and I looked out the window, the houses looked like well arranged lego. It’s like an opening scene in Harry Potter where you see Hedwig swooping down to Harry’s window.
    2.) There’s a drive through ATM
    3.) There’s a drive through…

  7. When Spending Time with You Creates More Eternity

    When Spending Time with You Creates More Eternity

    Spending time with you subtracts,

    Creates a hole,

    As though I had spent no time with you,

    Or had a negative number of times spent with you.

  8. Pregnant Pause

    Note: I saw this in my old multiply account, and I decided to post it here.

    I was talking to my mom when I randomly said “What if I don’t want to have a baby,” and she said “Kaw bahala, basta hindi ako parang lola mo na magpapaka-martyr na mag-aalaga ng baby“.

    I realized she thought I said “What if I want to have a baby”. As in akala niya I wanted one right now, tipongteenage pregnancy, and I…

  9. When I Die

    As I have said countless of times in this blog, I want to be a great writer. When I die though, I don’t want people to talk about my achievements, but I want people to tell stories about how I lived. As much as I love writing, and it is a big part of me, I find that there’s something cold about discussing a person’s achievements at a funeral.

    I want to be remembered for the way I laughed. I want…

  10. Improv Beginners Workshop

    The participants of the improv acting workshop were seated in a bench when the facilitators faced us, and in unison, they raised their arms and said, “Ho!” We were confused. They raised their arms again and said, “Ho!” With no other words, the participants stood up, and formed a circle with the facilitators.

    One facilitator said “Ho!” as he raised his arms. The two beside him directed their arms…
