Tenderness (Fiction)

“TENDERNESS”
by Juan Bautista

 

I am dying, when I met the love of my life. Oh well, the world is a humongous joke anyway. And since I was a child, life is like, “look at this ridiculous creature, another toy to satiate on whenever everything’s boring like a lame-lone kite in a cloudless sky!” Continue reading “Tenderness (Fiction)”

BIYAHENG BAKAL (Dagli)

Habang naglalakad nang nakayuko hawak ang selpon, nagmamadali pero tatanga-tanga, hindi ko sinasadyang natadiyakan ang mga paninda ng isang ale sa gilid ng bangketa. “Ano ka ba? Selpon ka nang selpon hindi ka tumitingin sa nilalakaran mo!” Sigaw sa ‘kin ng medyo may edad nang ale. “Pasensya na ho,” sabi ko, “may nasira ho ba? Babayaran ko na lang ho. Pasensya na.” Patuloy ko habang tinutulungan siyang damputin isa-isa ang mga nagkalat niyang paninda. Continue reading “BIYAHENG BAKAL (Dagli)”

Tao Lang

Isa si Loonie o Marlon Peroramas sa mga hinahangaan kong makatang lirikal.

Kaya naman hindi kataka-taka, na milyon ang bilang ng mga sumusuporta’t humahanga sa kanya. At alam niya ‘yon. Alam na alam. Continue reading “Tao Lang”

Creak in the woods

“Creak in the woods”
Juan Bautista

 

“Get up son. It’s time.” Rico’s father beamed in excitement. For that day was hunt day. They were about to go to the woods for a two day hunting. “Comin’ Pops.” Rico answered scornfully. It was a cold four  o’clock in the morning and his body didn’t want to leave his bed that early. And in fact, he doesn’t even have a mite of interest. A ten year old boy should be watching TV, playing and sleeping on the weekends. Not to crawl and crouch in the middle of the desolated woods, and wait patiently for hours in a chilling weather holding a crossbow and binoculars. Continue reading “Creak in the woods”
