Takipsilim/I

Anong uring hayop ito?
Lumilingkis na ahas
Kumakapit na amorseko
Tumitipak na bato
Kung hangad mong magsalita
Ikaw ay sasakalin
Kung hangad mong tumingin
Ikaw ay bubulagin
Kung hangad mong tumakbo
Ikaw ay pipigilin
Sa tag-araw
Babalabal ito, malayelong bayawak
Sa tag-ulan
Maninila ito, maapoy na alitaptap

Walang duda
Ikaw marahil ang basag na mukha ng kalungkutan
sa laberinto ng Minotaur

From Una Furtiva Lagrima, 1993
