FAREWELL TO A DECEASED KIN

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

History is Judge and Witness

to the truth that my heart is ne’er

A nest of

Resentment

 

for you o! deceased kin

You were never a

Creator of terror and trouble

 

nor villain are you for the anguish

you’d upon me outpoured from time to time

 

No resentment!

Be in peace as the Dove that is now

your fulfilled state.

 

Farewell!

 

 

[Writ. 11 June 1988, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila]

CADAVER’S BIOGRAPHY

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

 

vermin upon vermin gather in mounds

undistinguished from the morsel

felled by it’s ego’s date with Grim Ripper

 

25, 50, 100, etc

are found without names in named or unnamed

cemeteries

 

uncelebrated figures

are puzzles that are delightful to civil

libertarians’ appetites for enigmas

 

–shadows without tales

or felled bodies do have sagas of pain

or joy unaffected by the Roman slaughter

of holy and unholy souls on Golgotha’s foot

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

The body dies, not the person.

Gone is your body alright

As birds announce at night

That gone is the sun

They ought to rest.

Your person, ‘tis a sublime conveyor

Of manifold messages and undying lore

Letters that spoke clearly to the unlettered

And the unlettered, to the lettered

Person is the perfect herald of life

The unlettered at last had eyes

And ears that stretched out to

Infinite worlds a-speaking: we ought make

Justice work finely, infinitely.

Go now, immortal!

Merge with the immense field of the kosmos!

A field without brims

Like you are to your fellowmen.

Rested and gone, be assured

The world will sing tunes of praises

For you a truly glorious countenance

You are a marvelous anthem remembered

Forever.

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