Basketball

Held in villages

As ours in Lumangbayan

Are much a part

Of zestful life

In the islands

Banters and catchcalls

Crowds and uniforms

Perfumed and foul smells

We squeeze ourselves

Like salami thumping

Jumping in limitless joy

Fuming madly when not satiated

To our oldies

A curse the basketball league is

For the zillion decibels of noise

Shatter their pretentious ears

But for the youth

And those feeling youthful

They are

A blessing and feast

Catharsis for the dense energies

Truly fun and tons of coke besides

Declaring summer had come

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Calming on a famed bar-resto

In the equally famed Eagle’s Nest of Antipolo

Sippin’ a glass of iced tea to cool

My focals brooked no quarters to feast

On the verdance and panoramic vista

Spread around hills from where I seated

To my back a wall of rock nesting

Another famed restaurant in noble state

Twas a day so clear of clouds a-near

But there afar below the flatlands

O’ Marikina, Manila, Makati & metro spaces

Hover dark malignant shrouds of smog

Blanketing the big city as endowment from Hades

Foreboding deaths unto millions of folks

Whose lungs breath toxic air as free trade

Luck it is that lush surround is retained

Neutralizing Hades’ grave emissions a-clear

And great it is that this city I live anew

Perches Divine Mother as nature’s nurturer

A true shelter indeed from all maelstroms

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Mood is pokered by afterthought

Of exercises in a gymn. ‘Tis a

Moment when one has no opinion

Or feelings for anything

Feelings are most unwanted scavengers

Let them not descend upon the self on this

Time.

Just listen to sweet music

Of fast and slow beats

Their messages, garbled and drowned in one’s

Unfeeling state.

Just let time past away

Past

Away.

[Writ. 24 May 91, Cubao, Quezon City, M.Manila]
