The King of Small Things

Tula Tuesday~

Napasulat ako habang nakaupo't naghihintay sa lumang terminal ng Victory Liner sa Caloocan. Madumi, medyo madilim at maulan. In short, boring. Pero good pa rin, excited ako sa reaction ng kalaro ko pagtapos ng biyahe. At magugulat ako kasi yayakapin niya ko.

The King of Small Things

Here he comes, dashing and staggering
The King of Small Things
He wears his vagueness like armor
His being though, is not small
No, not small at all

The King loves the tiny little things
All of which are rolled into an amalgam
To create little thistles and spiky thorns
Hit them hard enough it'll open up wounds
Such are the kingdoms of the King of Small Things

He reigns, thus with compounds of such trinkets
His poignant enormity casts shadows
Upon colossus of things
Such is the reach of the King of Small Things

Nakakahiya man, dapat masubukan.
