Dalum Tulay

Macky Torrechilla

Dulum sa dalum tulay.

Ang siga kang gaisarahanun nga sulo,

bastante lang;

Ginasanagan ang amun mga pungyahun

samtang ginaharonan kang kadulum

ang alima nga nagapanoltol.


Darwa run ka adlaw, sagunsun,

Nga ang ana nga lawas akun ginasturya.

Wara ti athag nga baslanay kang tinaga:

Kundi mga hani sa lubut,

mga sugo sa utong,

mga imbitasyon kang hikap.


Pero sa ikatlo nga gabii,

Darwa run ang poste kang sulo.


Under the Bridge

It’s dark under the bridge.

The light coming from the sole light post

is merely enough;

Illuminating our faces

while creating shadows to conceal

the path of a crawling hand.


Two consecutive days, it has been,

that I converse with his body.

No clear exchange of words,

but whispers in the nape,

favors of the nipples,

and invitations by caress.


But on the third night,

there are already two light posts.
