IN FLIGHT (Poem 11)

Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

In flight I shall ascend with a body
As robust as the physique

Of Apollo
Bernardo Carpio

Sturdy godly frames
Are blazing flames!
They drive away pests
And illnesses: sordid demons
Parasites of Hades!

Indeed my body possesses
None such a duty as catching Dis-ease
Along the way.

Fly I shall!

[Writ. 24 Aug. 1987, Univ. of the Philippines, Quezon City, M.Manila.]
