Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago


They came again as before to toss me querries

Interviewer and camera men to spice

Their grins as huge as the moon’s smiles

From big television network nesteld

By program named Kapuso to boot

Accompanied by quaffs of pineapple juice

My ears I lent to them sharp as blade

They then asked me to build thoughts

In shape to explicate Brasilia’s invasion

Of Manila’s culture spaces—

Fashion, music, food, endorsers

For which I replied:

We are sponges all to porous

Retaining what we are as we absorb

Brasilia’s symbol constructs and aesthetics

For we relish them in sublime appreciation

This was how we Pinoys came to be

Soaring high like the Philippine eagle

Filled with values and images borrowed

Yet fulfilled and towering as our spirit

So shall we be yet in the morrows

[Philippines, 19 May 2010]
