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)”
“Mga panaghoy sa apoy”
Isa nanamang obra ang aking natapos. Isang pangahas na obra na nakatakda ring maglaho kinabukasan.
Bakit nga ba ‘ko gumagawa ng isang obrang base sa imahen ng taong kinasusuklaman ko? Isang taong libu-libo na ang pinahirapan at pinatay, pero milyun-milyon pa rin ang sumusuporta’t nagtitiwala. Continue reading “ALAGWA”
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)”
Isa si Loonie o Marlon Peroramas sa mga hinahangaan kong makatang lirikal. Bukod sa kanyang kahusayan sa paghabi’t paglalaro ng mga salita upang makabuo ng mga bersong may ritmo, may kasaysayan ang kanyang mga gawang sining. Bagama’t mas marami pang nauna sa kanyang larangan, masasabi kong nasa Top 10 siya ng aking listahan sa mga emcees natin sa ngayon. 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”
I would agree that it could be done in a rush. But I liked it. No, I loved it!
I always knew that the Starks are the main protagonists of the TV show. It’s a no brainer but to think how the story of Daenerys Targaryen ended, Continue reading “On Game of Thrones Finale”

“Creak in the woods”
“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”
“Ang lalaking nakapula”
Maikling kuwento ni Juan Bautista
“Shit! Tangina mo bobo!” Sigaw ni Eric sa drayber ng sasakyang muntik na nilang makabanggan.
“Ano ba Eric. H’wag masyado mainit ang ulo sa kalsada, mapapaaway ka nanaman nyan e.” Saway ni Diana. Continue reading “ANG LALAKING NAKAPULA (Maikling Kuwento)”
