Late Fall

heat-
islands of seven .
thousand degrees

faith-
eighty million man prayer circle
praise the one Father

poverty-
firget malicious gossip
comfort means laughter and food

food-
soy sauce soaked chicken
dripping on white rice

celebration-
razor blade feet resist
bamboo sticks' quick snap

nature-
Pagsanjan falls
crisp spray splash

honor -
Lolo's fingertips caress
baby boy's forehead

--Lizelle Arellano

Milton's Road

The sidewalk is uncrowded
yet he walks in the road
Milton's road
There's a great spirit
It's in you
It's in me
He disregards the epitaphs
On the gravestones
In Bradbury park
A sermon he recalls
"Do unto others," they banter
Sure, why not?
And watch the curtains drop
Down on an era
In a ball of flaming
Styrofoam and gasoline
Like the deer hunter
He aims and waits
For when the time is right
