“Humikab ang dagat na parang leon
masarap sanang tumalon pero
BAWAL MAGTAPON NG BASURA
sabi ng alon.”
Jose F. Lacaba, Salvaged Poems

“At nineteen Rimbaud reminded us
To despair: there was nothing more to do,
Hell was closed for all seasons,
And for all practical purposes it was
All burnt out.
...
At nineteen
All our vanity sobered into desperate awe:
We drank our beer, and cursed Rimbaud.”
Jose F. Lacaba
