Frank Rivera’s Textula:
Bayang mahilig sa ganda/
Inuuna ang postura/
Walang laman ang bituka/
Kundi gasgas na pag-asa.//
Si Megan Young nang manalo//
Nagbunyi ang Pilipino/
May dala sanang asenso/
Magkakapag-asa tayo.//
Nagkagyera sa Mindanao/
Kaban ng bayan ninakaw/
Sa bagyo’y daming pumanaw/
Miss World, salamat sa araw.//

Untitled
The books tumbled to the ground, a landslide
of paper. She righted the toppled box and
picked up each book, cradling it like a
broken bird, inspecting the spine and pages
for damage. James watched her,
unrepentant. She carried the box to the car,
not uttering a word, even goodbye.
Our Bucket List, by Lisa Miller
Nice country wedding. We were happy. You had a
look; you talked the talk. I admired your air of
sophistication. We grew apart the night you didn’t
come home. I cooked a turkey and gathered eggs.
You drank too much at the Bridge City Pub. By the
way, I knew about your affair. “Let's write our
bucket list,” you announced one day. Then told me I
was stupid, rolling your eyes. I decided on skydiving
and purchased life insurance (just in case). I need
to make sure I pack her parachute myself, he
thought, wondering when he’d start his plan.
