Maraming pangalan ang kalungkutan


Nakikita mo sila sa iba’t-ibang hugis
Lumilitaw silang paisa-isa o sabay-sabay
Nagpapasalin-salin sa mga labi, sa mga pisngi
Dumadampi sa mga guhit ng palad sa kamay
Dumadadagan sa dibdib sa yakap na mahigpit.

Nagpaparamdam sila nang walang pasintabi -
Sa madaling-araw, sa tanghali o sa kalaliman ng gabi.
At madalas kung walang pagsidlan lumalabas sila
Sa mga lansangan, nakakasalubong mo sa tawiran
Humahangos kapag green na ang signal.

Sumasakay sila, nakikipagsiksikan sa MRT pa-Ayala
Nasa huling upuan sa bus papuntang Alabang
O taga-abot ng bayad sa jeep na biyaheng Baclaran.
Umuupo sila sa may fountain area sa Glorietta
O kasabay mong humihigop ng white choco mocha.

Nagsusuot sila ng iba’t-ibang estilo, bago o retro
Nanganganak ng maraming kulay, humahalo
Sa karamihan minsan kusang humihiwalay:
Matingkad na pula, itim, puting-puti, basta sari-sari
Ang tubog ng balat, ng damit, ng buhok, ng labi.

Kinakawayan sila, binabati ng kakilala,
Nakakabunggo, nakakasabay sa daan
Tinatawag sa maraming pangalan ang kalungkutan
Sa iba’t-ibang araw, sa iba’t-ibang lugar
Kahit pa nananahan sa iisang katawan.

'Tol,

Malungkot ka ba? Iinom na lang natin 'yan!

Sagot sa kalungkutan? Eh, ano pa nga ba? Kaligayahan! At ang kaligayahan ay marami ring pangalan.

paano kaya yon? Estonia ka, Pinas ako. dayain mo pa ako sa tagay. pag-uwi mo dito painom ka na lang.

hayaan mo, iiwan ko na si Billy Corgan sa kanyang celebration of "the human condition of mortal sorrow".
