Salumpang

 

 

kapos na sa pintura ang dakilang pintor

at katulad ng ilang larawang ‘di-tapos

masasadlak ka rin sa silid ng paglimot

katabi ng pangalan mong ipinagkait

ng manlilikha: hindi na magkakahugis pa

ang nagmamakaawa mong mukha.

 

 

~alay kay Cherry, kasamang guro na aksidenteng napaslang sa holdapan noong ika 1 ng Disyembre, 2010 sa Catanauan, Quezon~

 

Pahaging:

 

Ms. Cherry Gil Malinao, with three other civilians, was indiscriminately shot while aboard a held up bus at front of a detachment in Catanauan, Quezon on December 1, 2010 prior to a report that the aforesaid vehicle was (hijacked) by insurgents in San Francisco, Quezon.  To this moment, it is not yet clear who had the victims pinned down while aboard the bus.
