Erle Frayne Argonza y Delago

Sitting by the front stairs of Ali Mall
I wait awhile for this ol’ pal of mine to open
Kindred soul this mall is for sublime hosting
Wondrous times with souls so many
Dates dines coffee chats with friends
To go with delicacies coffee wine

Thought in short minutes I can
While waiting scribble a poem or two
To freshen my day anew before a-surf
Will I in cozy cyber-nook inside
Mall’s bellies and intestines delightful

And so my pen coughs up some lines a-cool
To say the day’s just a-bursting with life
No twilight is this moment no elegy
Rewrit for fallen heroes kins and cronies
In pensive mood I scour my mind’s recess
For what-can-be listings and feastings
O’ buko juice and vegan diet later
