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

MALL WAIT

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Sitting by the front stairs of Ali Mall

I wait awhile for this ol’ pal of mine to open

Kindred soul this mall is for sublime hosting

Wondrous times with souls so many

Dates dines coffee chats with friends

To go with delicacies coffee wine

Thought in short minutes I can

While waiting scribble a poem or two

To freshen my day anew before a-surf

Will I in cozy cyber-nook inside

Mall’s bellies and intestines delightful

And so my pen coughts up some lines a-cool

To say the day’s just a-bursting with life

No twilight is this moment no elegy

Rewrit for fallen heroes kins and cronies

In pensive mood I scour my mind’s recess

For what-can-be listings and feastings

O’ buko juice and vegan diet later

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
