Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

 

Well they do

Carry you

To your travel’s destination

 

These tricycles

Jeepneys

Ferries

 

Hallmarks of tropical Filipiniana

Whose travel trails are mixtures

Of well paved avenues

And dusty rugged roads

 

They do make your tours

Altogether fascinating and crucifying

 

Even as the good buses

Flashy yatch and jet planes

That cater your travels

Lead your ocular organs to witness

The tapestry of wretchedness

And inertia of blighted villages

That altogether inevitably erases

The shangrilaic imageries about the tropics

That may gather in your mind

Like clouds over the Sierra Madre

That the Pacific wind eagerly dissolves.

 

[Writ. 09 Oct. 1987, Proj. 8, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
