Tayo by Anggo Genorga

there is nothing
patriotic nothing close
to resembling the
diaspora, the post –
colonization, the
intersectionality of
shared experiences
thru migration on a
suite of poetry that tells
about the hassle of being
suspected of peeping by
a beautiful, long legged
English woman on the train
who made you feel like shit
by just staring at you and
even if the poem has a good
Bukowski vibe going on,

nor a poem about an
OFW badly missing home
and getting sentimental
on a Middle East country
where the sands scattered
on the street begins
to look like lines of
snow white cocaine

or getting annoyed with a
custom and work schedule
that depends on lunar activity
and deeply sympathizing with
our kabayan gettin’ it on with
the locals and foreigners
just to get by…

“ what’s with this guy? ”
“ did he took time to read what
it is exactly that we’re looking for? ”

one of these must be their reaction.
nevertheless, there is something
that goes awry between an
automated response and
the rejected writer.
