of nachos and french fries
of tacos and potato chips
of cheese burgers and pancakes
all of which they say,
to health and


why is it my love
that these seemingly
unhealthy, most hatedΒ 
foodstuffs by fitness and
health enthusiasts, are most
delectable, delicious when eaten with you?

tell me

why can’t I stop munching on them
like they are your lips touching mine
that they are your hands caressing
my face, with each spilled cheesy sauce
or that they are your tongue dusting
the crumbs on my blushing cheek
oh, please tell me why

until then

one large french fries for me please
with lots of cheesy garlic sauce


lets go take a long drive,
along the boulevard down to your hometown, with bright smiles
awaiting for your homecoming

and, oh dear let’s not forget
we eat these on separate occassions
and that, Mc Donalds, Jollibee
and Burger King, none of them
paid me for this poetic fast food get away

along the highway, over crossroads
and junctions with our song on the radio
your left hand on the steering wheel,
the right one fervently holding my hand


a passionate quick kiss on my lips
when the red traffic light is on

maybe then can we take
the curve somewhere?


I am home with your kiss

I Remember You


’twas not so long ago
I came to know you
over exchange of
small talks and “hi” and “hello”
how long has it been?
I can’t even remember then
but I remember you in days
when I’ve run out of things to do
and my muse is in an ultimate unannounced break
I remember you over galleries of photographs
and stunning images of people, of nature,
of even the most insignificant photo
I remember you over wonderful thoughts
about life and motherhood
about living the daily extraordinarily
I remember you
and you reminded me of a
wonderful and brilliant poet, Helene
who’s soul have joined the rest of the lovely angels
and magnificent minds and thinkers
of writers and poets
who have gone ahead of us
in heaven
and so today
I am pretty sure
Helene is up there waving
and smiling as she warmly joins me
in saying “happy birthday, dear Sadje”
I remember you

written for Sadje in celebration of her 59th birthday
