THE GUERILLA

 

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Fine, fine is the guerilla
knows s/he that the hinterland
is an infernal zone
where the enemy’s textbook lessons
seem like lost dots and dazed calculi
in a wildly vast encyclopedia

Fine, fine is the guerilla
s/he the master of warfare’s laws
of cunny maneuvers
amid tricky foliages and fields

The guerilla
Just like culture heroes
Is a sung hero

[Writ. 04 June 91. Cubao, Quezon City, M.Manila]

 Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Interviewed by a searching student

On first hour o’ the day

After a storm had passed

Queried she if angels exist

Or that I believe in angels

To which I quipped with certainty

A matter of fact and not belief

Angels are” with nary an eyelash batted

Love Beings they are

Whose Presence cleanse and balance

The Earth’s dirtied aura

A whole domain of life they inhabit

In abodes of exquisite architecture

They too help each one of us

As an Inner Guide and sentinel

Connected they are

To the Cosmic Heart of the Mother

They are the Heart’s benign resonators

May they grown and prosper too

And experience the abundance

Of the universe

[Philippines, 14 July 2010]

Innocence kills the orca as much as the cat

By pretentious Terrans ego-filled pretenders

Caging the orca they to fatten bourses

O’ greedy oceanarium carpetbaggers

 

Ignorance for what they take as fish-like mammal

Are more intelligent than Terrans whose very brain

Is as fractious as a beetle or ant infinitesimal

Valueless they have no virtue yet to settle

 

Orca is a cosmic warrior sent to balance

The seas to form the phalanx versus negative

Fishes and creepers from surface to yon bottom

Sent forth by Hades a-preying on dumb mortals

 

‘Tis surely criminal to slaughter or cage them

Within they are of human souls o! so benign!

From mighty Sirius’ mien sent forth they

One day shall cosmic Justice settle the debts

Of greed ignominy of orcas’ killers whet

 

Such day to come is near when killers all

Will be the ones en-caged in dens so tall

Nowhere can they escape the jails so high

Till justice served on them they make a sigh

[Philippines, 01 May 2010.]

LOOK FORWARD

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

If you enthused trav’ler o’ life truly seeks

For prosperity’s gains abundance showers

Think that life’s journey is a stairway climb

Where there beyond the steps is where you go

Perturb be not with sights of past a-flow

With one covered by past glories a-glow

The other eye bandaged in past pains a-crow

For being so glued to thy ancient past

Will you fail to step up stairs in swave vogue

Take note of pasts as files to archive behind

Your eyes ought focus only on the destination

One eye to concentrate on stairway’s end

The other eye to watch the steps you traverse

The ones who regale in the past so glued to

End up in mediocre feats of simpletons

While those who transfix focus on their big dreams

Are smartened toughies success brews

[Philippines, 24 April 2010]

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

Too many wars have come and gone in this eden

Some have ceased yet others rage ceaseless embers

Even the carabaos wonder when they’d end at last

As eagles say “we see no end to them from atop”

Fed up are folks and erudite ones to the sporty wars

Already in hell of poverty their hells upped

All the more like grinder tools smouldering bones

They wait for simple peace without messiahs

Weary am I too for all those bombs & gun fires

Add now the terrorists’ swaths of destruction anew

I could only sit and pray for the ascension moment

Though that sounds silly like pepperoni & chili

[Philippines, 22 April 2010.]

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Twas a 16th day of November when it hap

On Year Four past the new millennium’s start

Dreadful a day writ in news of world sorrows

O’ laboring scions of Filipinas diabolically felled

By verdugos’ sadistic gunfires sprayed

Upon helpless citizens treated like unwanted pests

A presidential palace denizen I was then

Among those called to aid build concord

Betwixt unionists and hacienda’s cacique-bosses

Inspired by Socrates and Lao Tzu

Dialogued we did a back-channel mode

Quaffs of soda and juice mixed wise counsel

Concord at last to bear upon the unionists

To merriment my boss and us lieutenants a-going

When gory heraldry splattered public media’s pages

As sadistic caciques called cops for aid to disperse

With nil compunction shot the toiling folks a-blaze

Turning festive moods into grim dirges

Shocked and embittered we peace builders

Could best show solidarity to martyred scions

Amid hymns of praises sung by avian choirs

Songbirds atop Makiling, Banawe, Apo boondocks

Proclaiming “honored and loved are felled scions”

They are truly human till their last breath

Emulated by youth & all

Courage fulfilled

[Philippines, 22 April 2010.]
