Erle Frayne D. Argonza
The day has just begun.
Here in my studio flat the air reverbs
With notes of dance music from disco fame
Preparing my psyche for the gym time waitin’.
From here I’m transported back to the 60s.
A tot I was then watching Ybanag culture
From my curious yet ignorant social focals.
There to wallow a bit as my Grandpa struts
The humble sala of our rising new home
Displaying with gusto the music of mascota
Dances with my Grandma to savor eternity
Of merriment and glowful likings for cultural spree
Of our locality we call by thee: Ybanag.
