Alay

Nakatukaw ako sa sarong kakanan
diyan lang sa may centro.
Hapon idto,
huri an sakong pangogtohan.

Sa balyong lamesa
may naheling akong:

  • Iced Tea na mayong ice
  • Malipot na maluto
  • Lechon Kawali
  • Gulay
  • Kutsara, Tinidor
  • Sawsawan

Kan maubos
na an sakuyang kinakakan,

Napansin kong mayo
pa si may kansadiri
kan kakanon sa balyong lamesa.

Dai ko naiwasang apodon
si waitress.

“Ate, sisay an makakan kayan?”
Naghapot ako.
“Ay, alay po iyan.”
Sabi niya.

 

 

Sa luwas may duwang
paralimos.
