Poetry: Muni-muni sa plantsa

Ito ang paborito kong blusa,
Koton, lukutin pero ok lang.
Sa paglapat ng plantsa,
Pansin ko ang maling gupit ng tela

Poetry: Road home

I remember you running to me when my tooth ached

Pamangkin ng Pangat*

Dalawang alamat;
Ang una ay kay Berberoca, ang malignong higante sa mga kuwento ng mga Tingguian,
Pangalawa ay kay Evangeline Dulag, pamangkin ni Macli-ing, ang pangat ng Tingalayan (at pinuno ng mga lumalaban sa Chico River Dams Project).

Poetry: Ang Everywoman

Ay ikaw, ako, siya.
Karaniwang babae, nakakasalubong sa kalsada,
Patuloy na nakikipagbuno’t nakikibaka
Sa mga hamon at sigwa ng buhay na aba.

Poetry: Ala, itabonyon

Ala, lualuanyon

naipidas a kandila
a nangmuli iti rupa
nga agruprupsa,
tapno aglanga
a nabannuag,
natakneng
ken naemma.

Poetry: Rumblings and a Burial

There is lingering wailing for the dead
They who were snatched in the dark alleys,
Pitched into the dictator’s fields of blood.

Poetry: Multitudes

A multitude of people
in my homeland
were sacrificed before the altar
of freedom
