Down within
where urge meets syllable
inert beyond small
feel of refusal

no claim to above
only breath
anymore false

not dissimilarity or likeness
just averting another’s avoidance
as forbidding own side glance
continuity for sake of leaving

serving none but needing to
endpoint of collapse
halts before insight
weighs every result with choice.

I was born in Trenton NJ, but my father was from the Philippines. I lived in the Philippines from 1983-89. After 17 years in Chicago, I returned to the Philippines and lived in Naic, Cavite, from 2010-2015. I returned to the US in 2015 and presently live in Plainsboro, NJ, where I write.
