mush much

Posted in poetry on December 31, 2010 by armedlittleboy

(hango sa internet)

Mahal kita, todo todo
walang break, walang preno
mabangga man sa kanto,
ikaw pa rin ang mahal koh.
Sa dahon ng gumamela,
bulaklak ng sampaguita,
doon moh makikita,
Ang salitang “mahal kita”

‘Mahal kita’ sa tagalog
‘I love you’ sa English
143 sa mathematics
Ewan ko kung sa Physics
Tubig is water,
Ilog is river,
combine it together,
I LOVE YOU forever

Read me

— Ophelia Alcantara-Dimalanta

whenever my voice flings arrows
your way at a fiery pace,
read, discover there is that
something in me that dies to go gentle.
for when i viciously tangle
with you trying to throw
you off course, inside, i am raring
to cover you, take you, become
all of me fire and fluid.
when i try to lord it over, empowered,
it is because inside i am already
slave groveling ready to heed your bidding,
crawling waves lapping you up
sea shore hillocks sky
all the way up, all drool and drivel.
and when i insolently seek out
pulpits to mount my gospel truths,
i am really one humped question mark
thrashing about for your steadying light.
and when i try to light you up whole,
there is really a part of your flame
i would want extinguished
to die rekindled in me alone,
and when i am wind taking roots
in your solid ground, i am roots as well
ready to take flight upon your wings.
when i prance around proud in times square.
i am child carousing in the greener
fringes of the heart’s final roosting.

read this idiolect,
read well, decode, detect,
and love me when i seem to hate.

Paskong Hiling

ni Sanyto P. Sederia

Nais kong ibahagi sa karamihan

Ang kwento at katagang binitiwan

Na tumatak sa aking puso’t isipan

Ng isang bata sa tambakan

 

 

Sasapit na naman ang pasko

Itong panahon dapat masaya ako

Totoo bang may santang naghahatid ng regalo

O di kaya sa batang mayaman lang ang pasko

 

 

Habang hawak ko ang pangahig at sako

Ang iba’y naghahanda na sa darating na pasko

Sa ilalim ng Christmas tree ay puno ng regalo

Ako nama’y naghahanap ng Bote, Bakal at Dyaryo

 

 

Sana meron ding pasko

Sa mga batang tulad ko

Kaming maagang namulat sa pagbabanat ng buto

Sana ay may darating na pasko

the words of 2010

(as listed by the new york times)

belieber: A fan of Justin Bieber, the Canadian pop singer who also spawned …

the Justin Bieber: A haircut also known as the flip and switch, the flow, or the twitch. Now driving parents crazy everywhere.

coffice: In South Korea, a coffee shop habitually used as an office by customers, who mooch its space, electricity, Wi-Fi and other resources. Presumably, they pay for the coffee.

halfalogue: Half of a conversation, like an overheard phone call. The term was coined in the research paper “Overheard Cell-Phone Conversations: When Less Speech is More Distracting” in the journal Psychological Science.

sofalize: A British marketing term created for people who prefer to stay home and communicate with others electronically.

mansplainer: A man compelled to explain or give an opinion about everything — especially to a woman. He speaks, often condescendingly, even if he doesn’t know what he’s talking about or even if it’s none of his business. Old term: a boor.

social graph: The structure of personal networks, who people know and how they know them, especially online. The term probably came from the internal lingo at Facebook, but it has spread widely among technology companies.

inception: Popularized by the movie “Inception,” the word expanded from its usual meaning and now refers to ideas planted in the dreams of other people.

double rainbow: A phrase from the hugely popular YouTube video by Paul Vasquez, featuring his breathless amazement at the sight of two rainbows at Yosemite National Park. It spawned parodies, television commercials, dance mixes, Auto-Tune versions, parties and Halloween costumes, and is now used to refer — ironically and not — to something amazing.

E.V.: An electric vehicle. While the term has been around for decades, there are now more cars like the Nissan Leaf and the Chevy Volt, which makes it more than an environmentalist’s pipeless dream.

vuvuzela: The South African plastic trumpet that invaded, like locusts, the World Cup matches in Johannesburg. Television viewers, as well as participants, couldn’t escape the buzzzzz.

Weird: Western, educated, industrialized, rich and democratic, an acronym and criticism of the typical subjects in studies by behavioral scientists. That is, they tend to be the easiest to recruit: undergraduates.

poutrage: False outrage, usually put on for personal, financial or political gain.

refudiate: Another Palinism, this time a blend of refute and repudiate. Now used with an eyebrow raised.

shellacking: President Obama’s preferred way to describe what happened to Democrats in the midterm elections. Some might call it a knock-down punch.

they say a lot of substances can cause addiction. alcohol, cocaine, morphine, nicotine, caffeine… the list goes on and on.

but dear, they forgot to include you.

after almost a year and a half, i find myself still hopelessly addicted to you. and i feel i will spend the rest of my life nursing this addiction.

it does not matter. for unlike those other substances wherein addiction causes degradation and wrinkles, being addicted to you uplifts me.

as jack nicholson said in the movie ‘as good as it gets’: “you make me want to be a better man”.

i am not perfect. i am far from good. but like the road projects of the DPWH, the pipe laying of Maynilad Water, and the construction of the SLEX, my being better may be taking quite a long time, but trust me i will be better. riding with me will be a lot smoother than what it is right now.

slowly the potholes will be gone, the leaks will be plugged, and we will have one smooth, speed-bursting, full throttle ride into those magnificent sunflower fields.

all i ask is for you to hold my hand while work on me is in progress. i am a priority project for you.
