Red Light

This poem was inspired by the kids who climb up the jeepney to sing for pennies when the traffic light is red.

Ang kulay ng langit ay pinag-aagawan ng asul at pula

habang si Dodong ay naglalakad na naka-paa

nakadukong binibilang anghawak na mga barya

Kinse lang ang kaniyang kinita

Sa buong araw na pagkanta

sa mga dyip na naka-para

Walang maramdamang init ang makukubal na mga paa

ramdam lang ang umiinit na mukha

sa tuwing kumakalabit siya

sa dyip na sakay ay pamilya

Tuwang-tuwa sa isa’t-isa

Tingin lang ang ibibigay sa kaniya

Si Dodong ay bababa

Magihihintay na muling umilaw

ang bilog na kulay pula
