Its Time

22 Dec

On December 22, when i was 22,
I sent you a message at 2 asking, “How are you?”.
And you answered, “Just fine” and “When will i see you?”.
(Pero alam mo namang uuwi ako nun, di ba?)

At 7 that evening, i received a call.
At 7:30, inside a taxi, i sent you one last plea.
At 7:30, that same evening, in an ER 6hours away from me, a doctor said, “Time of death…7:30”.


After Reading The Hotel New Hampshire

4 Dec

Reading the book keeps you on edge. It’s fascinating and at the same time, disturbing in a n enlightening way. Its welcoming, too. You hope but not necessarily expect , you just read on to know what happened next. But when you think it wouldn’t surprise you anymore, it would take you off your seat with its next revelation. Its definitely a queer, unpredictable and entertaining family.

You have to be open to all ideas, to any possibilities. Delay your judgment and read on until the end.
