Tension

Thinking this intense
Hongkong horror film
instead of a Bangkok
kung-fu action drama
is not the reason
my bladder holds
all the pressure
of a fire hydrant
and the heavy baggage
sitting on my lap
pinning my legs down
making it worse:
the harsh joke
of the typhoon rain
heard outside along
with the empty bottle
of iced tea rolling
below the seats.

15-22 July 2014
Katipunan, Quezon City
[aka my goodness, I write slower now]
