Welcome to The Chronicle of Change

The Chronicle of Change is a collection of poetry written since the 1990s. As most of the poems are in hard copy, I will have to encode them one by one, so bear with me. I will be posting them as I go along.

The dates of posting are not necessarily the dates of creation.

I do not and never will claim that they are good, but if you find value in them, I thank you. You are most welcome to comment. I welcome both praise and criticism.

If for any reason you need to quote, lift excerpts, print, publish, or refer to the poems in any way, I would appreciate a note or an email, an acknowledgment of ownership, and an acknowledgment of the website. Intellectual property rights do apply.

Sa Burol

Habang lalo kong tinititigan
ang kabaong mong puti
lalo akong nandidiri.
ang balatkayo mo
sa loob ng kahang kuwadrado.
Patay na nagmamalinis
binabalot ako ng inis
habang sa isip ko
pumupunit ang
halakhak na mapait.

Tutungkabin ko na lang
ang mga sugat kong naglangib.

- written some time in 2000 at the wake of a grandparent
