SA ISANG KAINAN: ANG KALAGAYANG BATAY
SA PALAGAY NI ABRAHAM MASLOW
1

Nakapaglalaway na putahe ang nasa aking harapan.

Habang inuubos ko ito unti-unting namang lumilitaw,

dumudungaw sa aking ulirat tila mga mukhang sabik,

ang mga bulaklak, paru-paro at liryo na makulay

na ubod ganda, nakaguhit sa mga pinggang babasagin.


2

Isang gusgusing pulubi ang nakatalungko sa isang parke

nakatingin sa malayo at naghahanap ng bagay na di-makita.


Tinatanung-tanong sa sarili kung may ibang tao

ang nakadarama sa kanyang kalunus-lunos na kalagayan.


Ang mga kahali-halinang bulaklak na nakapaligid sa kanya

at tumatawag pansin sa mga walang-kibong nagdaraan


Ay pawang mga bulok na basura lamang na tinapon

sa kanyang harapan ng kung sinong walang-awang diwata.


Ah, ang mga ito ay bulaklak na abuloy at limos sa kanyang yumaong pita,

sa kanyang yumaong pangarap, sa kanyang yumaong bukas.
