edgar macasaet salas
edgar macasaet salas mengaspac yay'ng balat qng malutung gabun
mesilab yng lupa qng mapaling pugun
palad mung macalyu, yang gewang ulmajan
deng oya at pasu na quecang cabyayan.

paslag me'yng gasera neng bengi dalumdum
acuit mu'yng cule na ning silab a gabun.
anti lang tsoklati qng tuling dang tagle
misulat yng cuentu ning taung magbante.

emu panintunan yng cualtang maracal
sapat mu'yng cailangan 'lang sobra 'lang culang
ultimung paynawa pabusten mu na pa
macaryud la musa deng obra mung gewa

emu oya't pasu yng daun ning gabun
cababan na ning lub qng pusu midatun.


[About the author. Edgar Macasaet Salas was born on the 30th day of December 1967. He is married and has a son named Cien Esquisse. An architect by profession, he is currently a member of the Holy Angel University-College of Engineering and Architecture faculty. He writes poetry in English and in Kapampangan, preferring the Shakespearean 14-line sonnet format. As a visual artist, he has so far mounted noteworthy three one-man shows in Angeles City. He plays guitar and piano, but admits to being a lousy singer (having heard a recording of himself at song, he decided to stick to reading his poetry instead). Gary, a.k.a. Garu, is a toy collector and is a member of the Diecast Car Collector of the Philippines (www.dcph.info)]
