“Dalandan Sorbet” – Makati, 29 September 2016

the taste
of oranges
lingers
in my
mouth
and i
feel the
melancholy
closing in.

and the
tart sweetness
gives way
to a
bitterness
not too
unpleasant
but jarring
nevertheless;
and again
i wonder
where it
went wrong
what i
did wrong
and i
pause
as i
remember
that you
had your
part
to play
in the
sequence
of events.

grimace
turns into
grin;
we will
have
a lot
to talk
about
at the
proper time…

but for
now,
i savour
the last
of the
oranges
and kiss
the summer
goodbye.
