Where? (Makati)

Where do you
Come from?
She asked

She sat in front
Of the mini mart

I sat close
By

She was beautiful
Her face a portrait
Of rearranged
Arrangements,
Smiles, last minute
Plans cancelled

Chipped
Bowls

Last night a
Child slept
Face down on
The sidewalk

Where do you
Come from, she
Asked

Frisco is
Far away
Yet I smell it
Somehow

It is under my
Fingernails
And in the antiseptic
Dirt of my pores

Where do you
Come from, she
Asked

Her words out
Of a sci-fi movie

I am a stranger from
A different planet

Where do you
Come from, she
Asked

My Frisco tongue
Searches for an
Answer
