Poetry

Imelda Corazon

she was attempting
to pilgrim in the search of
ilustrados
mingled memories
disillusioned
romanticized.

but even those
respond with
precedents and aftermaths
attached to
master-of-laws ready
to betray
to define himself
to the human frailty.

her husband
epitomize
tyranny
monitoring the fate
of those
who oppose
bureaucrats

the uncertain
filipino’s struggle
with peasants alike
groping for nationhood,
can no longer separate
within the
fragments.
